Scary Stories to Tell at Two Cookie Minimum

Two Cookie Minimum is going to change the format a bit for our next reading on Tuesday October 1st. To kick off Halloween a bit early,  the reading will celebrates the work of classic young adult books Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.

Readers will perform their favorite selections bringing these scary tales off the page and onto the stage.

Scheduled readers include zinester Jim Joyce, writer and events organizer Mairead Case, writer Hillary Stone and Two Cookie host Johnny Misfit.

There will be a sign up sheet beginning at 8:45 for ANYONE who wishes to join in the reading and share their favorite stories with the audience (bring a copy of the book so there's no waiting).

Plus, the reading wouldn’t be complete without the spine chilling images that accompanied the text in the books. Corresponding images will be projected along with the readings.

At Hungry Brain, 2319 W Belmont, 9pm.  Halloween cookies and candy!

September Two Cookie Wrap Up: press. photos. videos.

Last month's Two Cookie had a great lineup supporting the new book Sad Robot Stories by Mason Johnson.  I wanted to share a post event wrap up for those who couldn't make it out. Thanks to those who made it out. See you next month.

There was an article in the Columbia Chronicle about Two Cookie Minimum with quotes from Mason Johnson, Daniel Shapiro and James Tadd Adcox.

There were some great photos taken by Allyson Frazier. Ever wonder what's it's like to be on the stage at Two Cookie? This photo captures it all. Check out the rest of the photos from Allyson's tumblr

There was video footage of the always funny Dan Shapiro reading some fan fiction of everyone's favorite sitcom based in Detriot, yeah you guessed it, Home Improvement. The intro alone is genius. Watch for yourself.
