Authors, Actors, & Art: A Perfect Opening Night

September 13

What a fabulous start to the series—standing room only at the Pence! Sacramento writer Kate Asche calls the event “half-stage performance, half-literary reading—and all wonderful!” Read the full write-up at Asche’s website, an essential source for information on literary happenings in our region.

Thanks to everyone who helped make our first event a success. We hope you’ll join us on October 12 for an evening featuring Jodi Angel, author of the collections The History of Vegas and You Only Get Letters from Jail, and emerging writer Azin Arefi.


Inaugural Event Countdown


It’s less than twenty-four hours until our first event, and we couldn’t be more excited. Join us tomorrow evening to hear great stories, munch on chocolate chip cookies garnished with sea salt, sip some wine or sparkling water, and even get your book signed by Valerie Fioravanti.

You’ll also get to see paintings, mosaics, ceramics, photography, textiles, and sculpture—the Stories on Stage space is part of the Pence’s rotating art gallery, so every month you’ll discover new authors, actors, and artists.

See you tomorrow!
