Christopher's first creative love was (and is) writing. Ten years ago he wrote middle-grade children's literature. For the few books he had published, there are dozens and dozens of unpublished books crammed in boxes and desk drawers... forgotten. Christopher knows he's not alone with this. We think it's time to revisit those hidden gems through a new reading series at Saint-Germain Cafe called Desk Drawer Readings. The second of the series will be Saturday, September 28 and will be held in conjunction with the third annual Arts Rising Festival.

The Desk-Drawer Reading Series will feature readings by various writers.

Join us for a cup of coffee and a listen to their long-lost and forgotten, unpublished, hidden gems.
