Calling All Grownups!

Even if you’ve mastered the spelling of words like “dedicated” and “trouble” by now, and you no longer consider Laura to be your very best friend, there’s still a chance to put those early works of literary exploration to good use.
Grownups Read Things They Wrote As Kids 2 is a creative (and so cute!) reading series that is the work of Dan Misener, who came up with the idea when he and his girlfriend spent an afternoon cleaning out her childhood bedroom and reading aloud to each other from her old notebooks and journals.
Anyone can participate, all you have to do is dig through boxes and find your elementary school writing projects, the diaries that you saved up 100 Bazooka Joe labels to send away for, or the wicked amazing adventures of the superheroes you made up who look suspiciously like Thundercats and bring them to the Victory Cafe (581 Markham St., upstairs) tonight at 8:00 p.m. Don’t act like you have something cuter to do!
