Bandwidth Reading Series #1

Bandwidth is an online reading series featuring writers from Texas and beyond. During these strange times, many book tours have been cancelled and there are fewer opportunities for writers to gather in public spaces.

Bandwidth is a series designed to make the “bandwidth” for writers online. Hosted by Sebastian Paramo, this month we feature James Phillip Davis, Tatiana Ryckman, Eric Tran, and Ursula Villarreal-Moura.

Event link will be emailed to those registered on the day of the event.
