Performance Schedule

Gwendolyn Bikis's prose is a slow riff on the full range of human feeling, rising through a lilting Southern morning, by afternoon a thunderstorm rumbling at the horizon, cooling to a warm groove at evening time. Her stories mesmerize, and her spoken word performances flow and sing with rhythm.
Natalie Galli, author, Three-Cornered Island
