The locally run Burning Chair Readings will hold its next program the afternoon of Saturday, Aug. 15, 2009 at Four Square Fine Art near Northwest Arkansas Mall.

Details are here. There’ll be music as well.

Organizers say: “The Burning Chair Readings began in the East Village of New York City and Brooklyn in 2004 and ran regularly for four years until setting up shop in Fayetteville, Arkansas in 2008.
