Rust Belt Books – 202 Allen Street
In classic used bookstore fashion, dusty, organized, and crowded Rust Belt Books on Allen Street is a place for discovery. Its narrow aisles feature titles of every genre and helpful staffers to assist in one’s navigation.
Occasionally the Allentown business holds poetry readings, dramatic performances, and openings for exhibitions hung high over the shelves. These events draw an urbane crowd from the neighborhood as well as from area colleges and university.
On Saturday, June 28th Rust Belt is holding one of their poetic evenings with local poet Jeffrey Charles Naish as anchor reader and emcee of sorts in their back room with small stage and seating for dozens of attendees. There will be other readers T.B.D. as well as open slots for those with lyrical work to share.
The weirdness of “Wine, Words and Weirdness” is an affectionate nod to the decided un-commercial quality of it all. Wine will be available, for inspirational purposes. WWW is free and begins at 7:00 p.m.
