Campfire Stories at The Modern

When: Mon., Sept. 8, 8 p.m. 2014

Practically anyone who grew up in Idaho has memories of a campfire--whether it was at summer camp or a friend's backyard fire pit, pouring some brews from a growler. This summer and through November--on the second Monday of each month--Radio Boise creates new memories of campfires on the patio of the Modern Hotel and Bar, where well known Idaho authors like Boise Weekly's own John Rember have come together and soothed the ears of their (adult) listeners over crackling flames. On Monday, eager campers can listen to Boise State University professor Christian Winn read from his new book Naked Me, released just last month. The collection of short stories captures characters generally at the end of their ropes. Alongside Winn, Martin Corless-Smith, a transplant from England also teaching creative writing at Boise State, will read his work as well. If you'd rather start your own campfire in the woods, you can listen to the podcast put together by Radio Boise after the show.
