Whiskey and Words

On Nov. 8, Madison Reading Project, a local nonprofit, hosted the Whiskey & Words fundraiser at the Old Sugar Distillery. Nine featured poets and authors — Ann Imig, Araceli Esparza, Barry Wein, Dana Maya, Etienne White, Leslie Coff, Oscar Mireles, Rachel Werner, and Susan Gloss — read their work, as did four additional open mic artists. The event was well attended with over 80 people coming to listen to the artists and support Madison Reading Project. The nonprofit is raising funds for its literacy programming for underserved children in south-central Wisconsin. This year, it will provide over 30,000 books benefiting over 14,000 children. The nonprofit also provides storytime and programming accompanied by free, quality books. Photo credit: Joel Ondercin. (For information on getting your event featured in the IB Gallery, email
