High Desert Reading Aloud Room
Organized by Neil Doshi
November 14–15, 2015
If reading is an act of interpretation, then what is reading aloud? Are you both the parrot and the master telling the parrot what to say? Are we as listeners interpreting what the reader is saying or the sayings of their voice? What happens when the solitary act of reading becomes shared?
Please join us, as participants and invited guests ponder these questions and read aloud from a various selection of texts.
Participants include Kristen Van Deventer, Kip Fjeld, Steve Kado, Annelies Kuiper, Ken Layne and Y O U, the mighty reader.
With selections of books found from in and around the Swap Meet, Kip's Desert Book Club, the Connections library, Cactus Wren Bookstore, and issues of The Desert Oracle.
Excerpts from the Reading Aloud Room will be recorded and transmitted over the ‘airwaves’ in partnership with local internet radio station Radio Free Joshua Tree
