It’s short notice, but if you’re in the West Central Missouri area, you should make plans to be at Montserrat Vineyards in Montserrat, MO tomorrow, Sunday, June 4, 2017. The SpoFest folks (Spoken Word Festival) are holding a special writer’s reading event and our own R.M.Kinder of the Blackwater Literary Society will be providing the music this time, instead of reading.
An accomplished musician and songwriter, R.M.K. will be playing and singing her original pieces with a special performance of line dancing to one of her songs. Her first novel, An Absolute Gentleman, was very well received. Her second novel, The Universe Playing Strings, is just out from the University of New Mexico Press, and is getting good reviews. Universe is about musicians in Tucson, where R.M.K. was active in the music scene for many years. It’s a treat to hear her play and sing, so don’t miss it.
The event runs from 6-8 pm. Montserrat Vineyard has a lovely outdoor venue and serves simple food, their own vineyard samplings, and some beers. I’ve been to these before and it’s a lovely way to spend a summer evening in Missouri with friends, food, wine and good writing—and good music. Come and join us if you can!
