The Arts Consortium of Carver County hosts an open reading event "Close Encounters of Any Kind" at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 3 at the Chaska Community Center, 1661 Park Ridge Drive, Chaska.
"A 'close encounter' can be a close look at a specific person, place or thing. It could be getting pulled over, a mosquito that won’t buzz off, or an experience that is specific to a special place," a press release stated.
Authors of fiction, nonfiction and poetry are invited to share their work. Participants are asked to limit their selection to five minutes and arrive a few minutes early to sign up for a slot.
The public is invited. The event will follow current CDC protocols.
