A wonderful collaboration between READ650, Cunneen-Hackett Arts Center, and the 2019 NEA Big Read with the Poughkeepsie Public Library!

Inspired by Ron Rash’s short stories which are so clearly rooted in ‘place’, we invited individuals to submit their short stories about ‘home’.  READ650 productions has selected about 12 stories and worked with the authors of those stories for a live-streamed public Big Read event on Sunday, October 27 at 2 pm at the Cunneen-Hackett Theatre. There will be a post-event reception where books can be purchased (all short stories selected for the stage event will be published).
