The Athena Project’s Read & Rant (new book club) – FREE!

March 9, 2020 @ 7:00 pm

The Athena Project and The Tattered Cover Bookstore in Denver announce the Read & Rant Book Club, a new book club exploring plays written primarily by women. Read two or three scripts a month and meet at the Tattered Cover Book Store on East Colfax Avenue to discuss the works.

Join Athena Project’s Executive Producer, Angela Astle, and Literary Manager, Darce Beck, on Monday, March 9th, 2020 from 7pm – 9pm at the first of their monthly free offerings. Learn what makes a good script; how reading a play is different than a book or story; converse with invited guests as part of our monthly discussions. Read & Rant is just one of their programs aimed at raising awareness of the under-representation of women’s stories on stage. The first plays are a 2020 Plays In Progress selection: “The Snake God of Fiji” (A Hedda Gabler Prequel) by Katherine Vondy and “Hedda Gabler” by Henrik Ibsen. Copies of the scripts will be emailed after participants register.

The conversation this month will focus on prequels and sequels. The invited guest is Lynde Rosario, the Literary Manager and Dramaturg at The Denver Center for the Performing Arts. She’ll share her experiences with the recent Ibsen’s A Doll’s House and the sequel of that play by Lucas Hnath.

All future Read & Rant meetings will take place on the 3rd Monday of the month, from 6:30-8:30pm.
