      Reading and Open Mic, Hosted by Randy Stern
      Sunday, October 16, 7:00pm Sunday (sign up starts at
      6:30)
      Mother Fool's Coffee House 1101 Williamson Street
      (608)259-1301
      As a closing for the Madison Zine Fest, Randy Stern
      will host a reading and Open Mic. Signup is at
      6:30pm. A former Madisonian, Minneapolis-based writer,
      poet, and gay activist, Randy Stern, will read from
      his book of poetry, The Boy From Reseda. Randy's
      poetry often looks at life from the perspective of a
      man who "did not fit the 'ideal' stereotype of gay
      culture." Sometimes witty and brash, at other times
      soulful and serene, Randy's writing shows more of the
      rough edges of personal triumph, struggles,
      acceptance, and hope.
