CLEVELAND, Ohio – Brews and Prose is returning to Market Garden Brewery this week.
The series, which brings in writers of all different genres to discuss their craft and read their work, will start again at the Ohio City brewery Wednesday, Sept. 15. Doors open at 3 p.m. Reading starts at 7 p.m.
Authors Claire Luchette, Dotun Akintoye and Natasha Oladokun are slated to participate in Wednesday’s event.
Luchette, from Chicago, is out with her debut novel, “Agatha of Little Neon.” Akintoye is an editor and writer for ESPN Magazine. And Oladokun is a poet-essayist serving as the inaugural First Wave Poetry Fellow at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Brews and Prose is free and held in the brewery’s beer garden, weather-permitting, at 1948 West 25th St., Cleveland. It will be moved to the brewpub’s basement in case of inclement weather.
Poet Dave Lucas co-founded and previously ran the series. Loung Ung and Phil Metres were the writers for the initial program in 2012.
Brews and Prose had been on hiatus since early 2020 because of the coronavirus pandemic. It will start up as a quarterly program “then I’m sure we will pick up the pace and get back to a monthly set-up,” said Sam McNulty, one of the brewery’s owners.
