Charis and Cliterati pair up the third Thursday of each month to present an inviting and fierce open mic & reading series that celebrates new voices and seasoned veterans alike. Co-hosted by Karen G. and Theresa Davis, all are welcome to come and share their work.
This month's featured author is Dana Piccoli. Dana Piccoli is an entertainment writer and pop culture critic, and the managing editor of the blog at Bella Books. When she’s not writing, you can often find her moderating panels at events like ClexaCon and New York Comic-Con, or hosting podcasts. She’s also known as Fairy Gaymother, a funny nickname that has turned into a real-life mission to encourage members of the LGBTQ community to activity follow their dreams. She lives in the Carolinas with her very patient wife, and a brood of fur babies. Her debut novel, Savor the Moment, takes readers on journey of sweet romance and second chances as Natalia Chambers, a successful singer/songwriter who's suffering from a nasty case of writer's block meets stunning pastry chef Maddy LaDuke and suddenly the words start to flow again.

Natalia Chambers is a successful singer/songwriter whose star is on the rise. But Nat has a problem. She can't seem to write any new music and the pressure is on to write a follow-up to her last record. The fact that her last girlfriend betrayed her and left her with a wounded heart certainly isn't helping any.
