Welcome to our spring season. Join us for this month’s edition of Pegasus Reading Series. This month we feature Shannon Hardwick, Andrew Koch, Danielle Sellers, Virginia Lee Wood.
About us: Pegasus Reading Series was founded and curated by the poets Robert Torres and Sebastian Paramo in 2014. When Torres left in 2015, Courtney Marie joined Sebastian to host & curate the series. In 2016, both poets joined forces to organize and curate Deep Ellum Lit Hop.
