Vouched mentioned in NUVO

26 Jul

Kind words by NUVO arts blogger Chi Sherman about last Friday’s reading:

I’m always happy to discover new places to hang out and to hear new voices, so Friday’s poetry reading at Calvin Fletcher’s Coffee Company (615 Virginia Avenue) that featured Brett Elizabeth Jenkins and Christopher Newgent was a treat. Calvin Fletcher’s features plush seating, books to make the mind hum, and a selection of original works for sale, including pottery, messenger bags, and photography by local artists.

Jenkins has work forthcoming in Pank and decomP. Newgent runs Vouched Books, which supports and promote small press literature. (I noticed Andrew Scott’s Modern Love among his works.) Between the nonprofit coffeehouse with the comfy seating and the new voices, I think I tapped into something pretty great.
