One Page Salon

March 7, 2023 7:30 PM - 10:00 PM CST

  • 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 and Owen Egerton. 

Five outstanding writers will read one page from a work in progress – which means the audience will be among the first to hear original new material from these talented folks: Fiona Dawson, Andrew Hilbert, Jeffrey Mays, Richard Santos, and Joy Victory. This magical evening of literary goodness will be hosted by Owen Egerton. 

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.
