Grownups Reading Series Outgrows Its Venue

2008_03_08grownups.jpgDan Misener’s unstoppably rad reading series, Grownups Read Things They Wrote As Kids, is moving to new digs for its fourth installation next Monday.
The little event that could—wherein grownups read their grade school stories, diaries, and poems to a bunch of people they’ve never met before—is picking up from its former home at the Victory Cafe and bopping over to the Gladstone to accommodate its ever-increasing audience of believers.
Even with the bigger venue, it’s still free, still open-mic, and rules for participation remain the same:
1. You have to be the one who wrote it as a kid
2. You have to be the one who reads it as an adult
3. It has to be short (under five minutes-ish)
So dig through your parents’ basement boxes and realize how much funnier you were when you didn’t know what the eff you were talking about. And then let everyone else know too on Monday at 8 p.m. at the Gladstone Hotel Ballroom.
