BRATTLEBORO >> Writers and readers rejoice! There is a place to move away from your thoughts and be social On Thursday nights, The Lounge at 4 High St., in Brattleboro transforms into "The Book Lounge," where poets, writers, and readers mingle and lean in to this beautiful profession.
Have you thought about joining a book group, but don't have time? The Book Lounge will also be a place to discuss what people are reading in small groups in a casual setting. No pressure to finish a book on time for a 'real' book group and there will always be 'spoiler alerts'!
The Book Lounge is curated by the editors at Green Writers Press, a local, independent publisher located in Brattleboro, to foster a social community around the creative arts in southern Vermont in a free and social space, where outside writers as well will be invited to participate.
