What is it?

The Brews + Prose series at Market Garden Brewery features readings and conversations with established and emerging authors in a setting that has rapidly become one of Cleveland's most popular places to eat and drink. Each event will feature two authors of different genres, and each reading will run for about thirty minutes. Authors' books will be sold on site by Visible Voice Books.
