La Playa Books was thrilled to welcome Write Out Loud this past Saturday and their live readings of holiday poems and short stories! Founded in 2007 by San Diego actors Veronica Murphy and Walter Ritter, Write Out Loud is a local non-profit dedicated to promoting literacy with live readings by professional actors.
Tim West and Eddie Yaroch lent their talents to La Playa Books last Saturday with readings from Ogden Nash, Robert Frost, Langston Hughes, Mark Twain, Robert Service, and many, many others.
“Write Out Loud is a wonderful thing. It gives a great opportunity to actors of a literary bent to combine their love of books with their craft,” says West. West and Yaroch are both local, professional actors who have been with Write Out Loud since their first year. “We are a small tribe of people who care deeply for literature,” says West. “Our motto is ‘let us read you a story…’”
And read they did!
