The Austin Public Library proudly announces the release of the Aural Literature anthology book, featuring 49 local writers who have participated in the program over the last two years. The Aural Literature book is available for free upon request at most APL locations. There are 500 books printed, so get your copy before they're gone!
The Library’s Aural Literature program began in January 2015 at the Terrazas Branch. Since then, each last Wednesday of the month has provided an opportunity for local writers to share their work through a public reading. For more information, join the Aural Literature Facebook Group.
Each Aural Literature program typically features four local writers who are allotted up to 15 minutes each to read their work. Over the last two years, the program has partnered with a number of organizations that reflect Austin’s diverse writing community including the Challenger Street Newspaper, Austin Bat Cave, VSA (the State Organization on Arts and Disability) and APL’s own Write Club program.
The program has since expanded into the podcast medium, making it easy to listen to local poets at home or on the go. Volumes, the Austin Public Library's podcast, features diverse perspective on creativity, knowledge and innovation in Austin. For more information visit library.austintexas.gov/volumes.
