For the past few weeks we’ve been working with Colorado author Robert Garner McBrearty on his new collection of short stories, Let the Birds Drink in Peace. The stories feature a variety of characters, from reluctant private investigators to worried brothers to kidnapped kids, and the stories’ styles range from contemplative to comedic. At the heart of them all, though, are characters willing to explore deep below the surfaces of their lives. We loved the collection when we read it and knew that it would be the perfect inaugural book.
Local organization Stories on Stage will read one of Robert’s stories on October 23 at Su Teatro at the Denver Civic theater at 1:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. The whole slate of performances feature Colorado authors: In addition to Robert, there will be stories by Laura Pritchett, Nick Arvin, and Joanne Greenberg.
If you can make it, please join us. Supporting independent local arts builds a community we want to be a part of.
