On Friday, June 15, 2018, four of the EQUINOX anthology contributors performed at The Suburban Farmhouse in Milton, DE, in part one of a two-part event labeled Date Night. The authors were joined by keyboardist Anne Browne who played an assortment of melodies ranging from classical to contemporary. Mark Polo, Dianne Pearce, Judith Speizer Crandell, and David Dutton were the featured readers of the evening. It’s safe to say that a good time was had by all. The Suburban Farmhouse welcomed DPP with a lovely hand-written sign displayed on the large table in the back of their restaurant and coffee bar. In addition to reading from EQUINOX, author David Dutton also piqued the audience’s interest by reading the prologue to his upcoming novel, ONE OF THE MADDING CROWD, publishing fall 2018 by DPP. Attendees each received a special two-sided souvenir card, containing an excerpt from Mr. Dutton’s forthcoming tome. Mr. Dutton can be seen in the top middle photo below, while Ms. Speizer Crandell is pictured bottom left.
Date Night part 2 will be held on Friday, June 22, and will feature readings by authors DD Beals, TJ Lewes, Carrie Sz Keane, William Cranell, and Bayne Northern. Dianne Pearce will emcee the event which will also feature music selections by singer-songwriter David Ara. The event begins at 5:00 PM. The Suburban Farmhouse is located at 108 Federal Street in Milton. An open-mic session is planned for authors who wish to perform their work. Sign-up at 5:00 PM as space is limited.
Great food and coffee, live music, original stories. Bring a date, pick up an anthology and meet the authors. We look forward to seeing you there!
