Thursday, June 27: Art of Storytelling

King's Books

By Kristin Kendle on June 25, 2013

Upon the evening of Thursday, June 27, three local writers will take to the hallowed spaces of King's Books for a reading - an evening of good old fashioned storytelling in Tacoma's most awesome of bookstores. The three writers: Titus Burley, Melissa Thayer and Joshua Swainston seek to entertain you with their clever words, their wit, their art.

"Readings usually aren't the most exciting thing in the world," says Swainston. "I'm not juggling chain saws. What I can promise is entertaining literary work from a few members of the community who are foolish enough to stand up and have their work be judged in such a way. Both Titus and Melissa are very skilled readers and performers and will be putting on a great set. As for me, I'll read about drugs and crime, so if you're into that sort of thing, and are tired of watching it on FOX then you'll enjoy it."
