Best Reading Series
1345 Connecticut Ave. NW, (202) 785-2333
If you’re going to spend a Sunday night listening to authors and poets share their personal work, you might as well do it in a bar, especially one with a Skee-ball machine. For that reason alone, the Three Tents Reading Series at the Big Hunt, sponsored by local literary magazine Big Lucks, succeeds. But by bringing in nationally renowned readers (essayist Roxane Gay and short-story writer Laura van den Berg are recent participants) along with local graduate students, hosts K Tyler Christensen and Mark Cugini turn a night at a Dupont Circle dive into an intimate evening of storytelling and learning.
