Nor’easter Open: Two Features
& an Open Mic!

Big Blue Marble Bookstore

Join us for our third Nor’easter Open, Nor’easter Exchange’s monthly open mic series that takes place at Mt. Airy Philadelphia’s Big Blue Marble Bookstore, co-hosted by Nina Sharma Jones and Quincy Scott Jones.  Each series kicks off with readings by two feature authors, followed by an hour of open mic.  Our April features are Carolina Maugeri and Lisa R. Nelson.  Nor’easter Exchange welcomes and is proud to support both emerging and established writers, at a bookstore with a truly independent heart.  Come read your work or just support that of your friends and neighbors.

For open mic, please arrive at least 15 minutes early (6:45 pm) to sign up, and allot 3 minutes for your reading.

Carolina Maugeri’s recent mixed media works, A Note on School of the Holy Beast and Takoyaki Hiss, Come L’amore, were included in the exhibitions Cinematic: Meditations Upon a Medium at the Osvaldo Romberg Studio and Containment Policy at the Pterodactyl Gallery. Since then she has performed music with Tristan Dahn in the Moles Not Molar series. She lives in Philadelphia.

Lisa R. Nelson, a Philadelphia native, has had her first works published in From Where We Sit: Black Writers Write Black Youth, a collection of short stories about African-American families. The book has been nominated for several awards. Lisa has a BA in Journalism with a concentration in Public Relations from Temple University . She has worked in public relations, community relations, and event planning, and is a senior staff member at a large Philadelphia non-profit family services agency. Lisa has participated in other readings throughout Philadelphia and is currently at work on a novella.
