Join Avid Bookshop for a night of literary revelry as we highlight Athens' playwrights! This event will take place Wednesday, April 18, from 6pm to 7pm at our Prince Ave. location. We will be working in tandem with Athens Playwrights' Workshop to present local playwrights who will be reading their short, original plays.

ABOUT ATHENS PLAYWRIGHTS' WORKSHOP:
Athens Playwrights' Workshop (APW) is a non-curricular, writer-centered workshop comprising of students, faculty, staff, and members of our community. We meet on alternating Mondays during the academic year. Some of our members have had professional productions, some of our members have had university productions, and some of our members have never had a production (nor written a play!) but enjoy our creative camaraderie.
