One Page Salon

May 7 2024 7:30 PM - 10:00 PM CDT

  • This event has passed.

The One Page Salon (called “the best literary evening in town” by the Austin American-Statesman) is a monthly reading series presented by the Writers’ League of Texas. 

Five outstanding writers – including Dalia Azim, Chris Barton, Jennifer Marchman, Greg Marshall, and Bo Hee Moon – will read one page from a work in progress, which means the audience will be among the first to hear new material from our talented line-up. Plus, there will be literary chit chat and fun & games and laughter and so much more.

The One Page Salon takes place on the lovely outdoor patio (weather permitting) at Radio Coffee & Beer in South Austin where attendees can enjoy coffee and beer and other libations. There are some tasty food trucks if you want to pick up a bite to eat and Reverie Books will be on hand selling an assortment of great reads, including our readers’ latest books. Your host for the evening will be WLT Executive Director Becka Oliver.
