THE WORLD PREMIERE OF ME reading a couple of my shorter pieces will apparently take place during a two-hour open-mic event Saturday night at Sonoma’s leading bookstore.

Billed as “Random Acts,” and staged from 5 to 7 p.m. in Readers’ Books outdoor Reading Garden, the monthly exercise in instant entertainment is open to anyone with cash and creativity — musical, poetic, or ranty.

“It’s five dollars, and you put your name in a hat,” Random Acts organizer Catherine Seveneau said earlier this week, adding that the would-be spectacle then has five minutes “to do whatever.”

Seveneau said Saturday’s production will be Random Acts’ third; the previous two drew more than two-dozen participants. Your humble metaphorager is looking forward to an evening of stomach-clenching excitement, and hopes to see you there!

Random Acts begins at 5 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 13. Readers’ Books, one of the few independent bookstores remaining in this wasteland of instant clickery, is located at 130 E. Napa St., Sonoma. Tickets not required.
