Reading Under the Influence Gets Slutty

On the first Wednesday of each month, a handful of regular and guest writers gather at Sheffield’s to read both their own original work and a few lines from famous authors. All work must relate to the theme of the month. Sometimes the theme is a bit vague (such as “Openings” or “Envy”), and sometimes it’s more specific (“Snow and Whiskey.”) Did we mention the theme this month is “Sluts!”? And true to the series’ name, there is drinking. The folks behind the podium take shots before and after they read, although the shots don’t necessarily have to be alcoholic.
