One of Austin’s most beloved reading series – One Page Salon – has gone virtual and teamed up with the Writers’ League of Texas for a series of special monthly events featuring quick readings and lots of perfectly paced literary shenanigans.

One Page Salon (called “the best literary evening in town” by the Austin American-Statesman) is the brainchild of novelist, screenwriter, and comedian Owen Egerton. For this special virtual event, five outstanding authors 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 writers. The brilliant and funny (and brilliantly funny) Owen Egerton will emcee.

Our amazing line-up of readers can be found below.
