The Back Porch Collective, appropriately named, held their first gathering on a Boston back porch. The writers hail from places as far flung as Albania, Britain, Cuba, India, Atlanta, and Miami, and one of their number is currently overseas. Their initial desire was to meet together, share work, enjoy an evening, and discuss issues that mattered to them. They quickly developed a rapport and found they connected around a common passion for global narratives, literature’s potential to create empathy across borders, and a commitment to explore human nature from inside a given context, be it geographical, political, or cultural. 

Join them on Friday, September 22, as they read from their work at a FREE Open House at Goethe-Institut Boston, featuring beer from Aeronaut, sausage from Karl’s, bread from Iggy’s, live music, other readings/performances, and more.

Friday, September 22, 2017, 5:00 p.m.
Goethe-Institut Boston, 170 Beacon St.
