Black Dog Reading May 3, 2010

The Saint Paul Almanac’s monthly Lowertown Reading Jam series continues in May with an evening showcasing what it means to be a Cultural Worker and the power of using the arts to heal, create and build community. (This is what we’ve been talking about here!)

Your host ( and also curator) for the evening will be Ms. Deborah Torraine at the Black Dog Cafe in St. Paul’s Lowertown.

This place has been a favorite for years. Pretty great wine selection and always local artists. Monday nights they even have drink specials. And hell, you’ll get to hear some damn good (free) work too.

Here’s the lineup,

Deborah A. Torraine,  Louis Alemayehu, Lisa Brimmer, Claire DeCoster, Lenora Harris, Lynette Harris, Michael Haynes, Quentin “Q” Moore and Leonard Wilkes.

Action starts at 7:00 pm and is free to the public.

The Lowertown Reading Jam Series continues at the Black Dog Café on the first Monday of the month
through July. Each session is hosted by a well-known writer or spoken word artist, and Saint Paul artist
Lara Hanson interprets the readings through drawings using Japanese ink brushes. Free hors d’oeuvres
are served, and the Black Dog Café offers its “Monday Madness” special featuring a large pizza and
bottle of wine or a large pizza and four Summit beer taps for just $20. All Reading Jams are American
Sign Language (ASL) interpreted.
