Love where you live!
LA MESA -- For the second year in a row, the Write Out Loud organization brought a simple reading to the San Pasquale Winery Tasting room and proved it just takes a few of the right words to make for an enjoyable evening.
More than 30 local residents, sipped wine, nibbled on appetizers and listened as three trained voices played homage to the author Ray Bradbury, this year's celebrated author.
La Mesa City Councilman Mark Araposthathis joined Write Out Loud founders Walter Ritter and Veronica Murphy in a formal reading of Bradbury's short story The Love Affair of Laurel and Hardy.
Prior to the reading, the audience also paid homage to Bradbury's famed worked Fahrenheit 451 by writing the title of the one book they would save from a mass book burning and displaying it before the audience.
The reading drew an eclectic group of book lovers and proved the backroom of the San Pasquale facility on La Mesa Boulevard is an ideal place for community gatherings.
