On the Edge at Casa Libreby Penelope Starr on Jul. 26, 2009, under Arts
Edge, the reading series of emerging and younger writers presents Sean Nevin and Kara Waite on Wednesday, July 29 at 8 p.m. at Casa Libre en la Solana, Tucson’s hidden literary treasure, 228 N. Fourth Ave, for a suggested donation of $5. Refreshments will be available after the reading.
If you’ve never been to Casa Libre before, you’re in for a treat. It’s a non-profit community resource center and funky yet comfortably restored multi-roomed inn for writers. They often have readings in the center courtyard next to the sparkling swimming pool in the summer or tucked in the cozy library in the winter.
Their mission is “to contribute to the development of a more cohesive literary culture in Tucson by acting as a physical hub where smaller groups may find refuge and connections.” Their website describes how they picked their name that roughly translates as Free House in the Sun.
In addition to classes and community meetings, Casa hosts the Lamplight Reading Series on the first Sunday of every month from 4 to 6 p.m. and the monthly Wednesday Night Salons (no meeting in August.)
