Borrowed Mic: State of Your Heart Address

  • Third House Books & Coffee 113 N Main St Gainesville, FL 32601 (map)

This week, the week of love and lonely hearts, we will be hosting a special borrowed mic. Come share your odes to love or love lost, bare that beating red muscle in your chest.

Borrowed Mic Night is an adaptation of an open mic. Instead of sharing your own work, this is a chance for any and every one to share someone else's work. A chance to share that poem, essay, or passage from a novel that you think everyone must hear.

What if you want to share something but you don't have anything picked out or can't decide? No problem! Here is how the evening will go.

7:30-8:00: Sign up and browse. For the first half hour, browse the store's eclectic selection of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction and find something that moves you that you just have to share with everyone else.

8:00-9:00: Borrow that mic! Share that poem, passage, or essay you've just read or you brought with you and help share amazing words with our community.

Readers get a drink token good for a free coffee or half-off a glass of house wine from Downtown Wine and Cheese, our neighbors down the hall!
