Oakland-East Bay Gay Men's Chorus asks our writers to help create vignettes
for their Christmas concert. This was our first collaboration with any group.
We succeeded beyond our wildest dreams. The vignettes went over well with
both the chorus and the audience.
- Monday, September 20, 2004 After all the ups and downs of
the year, we still managed to see our first anniversary. The party we had
on the 20th was small but very well received. The dinner was great and the
reading was excellent. Here's hoping that we can see the next year through
with even more success.

this reading will set the benchmark for not just our next Coffeehouse Reading
but for all other future PWU Events.
