Take the house concert idea and apply it to books

You’ve heard of house concerts, right? Where a band plays at a private home or in the basement of an apartment building and you get to be up close and personal? [Aside, I was once asked if I if I was interested in hosting a house party, but since they wanted me to be able to cram 40 folks in our house, I knew immediately the answer was “no.”]

Now two young women are running a monthly reading series out of their apartment in Chicago. What I can’t tell from the story is whether the authors actually get paid anything or sell anything. Usually at a house concert you pay 10 bucks or more a person to get in.

Learn more about this informal reading series here.
