Allan Street is a monthly literary-salon style reading series in Halifax curated by writer and editor Jenner-Brooke Berger.
Fiction and poetry is read to a blushing audience under low light by local hidden and not-so hidden literary talents one Wednesday a month at 7:00 p.m. The intimate setting of Allan Street encourages heightened emotional reactions by way of literature, wine and baked goods.
The Allan Street Reading Series is free to all guests, and operates on a donations-based budget. Allan Street operates within its means, but has a few tricks up its sleeve, and is seeking to expand in more ways than one. More news to come.
Allan Street would not be possible without the help of Julia Boone, Ben Stephenson and Richard Light. All artwork copyright Ben Stephenson 2010.
