The Creative Writers Reading Series at Henrys (11 East Eighth Street in Lawrence, 785-331-3511) is an opportunity for normally cloistered writers to emerge into the light and present their work in front of an audience. Chloe Jones, an MFA fiction student at the University of Kansas, has been organizing the series for the past two years. Its a collection of graduate students, professors and people from the community who bring in creative nonfiction, short stories and poetry. Its really up to them, she says. Its centered on KU, but weve had a few people from the Lawrence community. While most nights you find MFA students, we look for a variety of people. The hourlong show starts at 5 p.m., and the series continues October 21, November 11 and December 2.
Sun., Sept. 30, 5 p.m.; Sun., Oct. 21, 5 p.m.; Sun., Nov. 11, 5 p.m.; Sun., Dec. 2, 5 p.m., 2007
