On Friday, members Marc Cappelletti and Kirsten Major read about everything from over-serving football fans to navigating high school crushes. Kirsten did double duty as a reader and our photographer. Our host Katherine had to snap a picture of Kirsten reading from her own camera but the other photos are professional-grade. The crowd was really lively, including other Paragraph members and lots of new faces and friends of the readers.

Humans are territorial beasts, and so, it seems, are members of Paragraph. Myself, I like to sit in the same cubicle every time I come here: the one beside the dusty ladder leading to the roof, under the "emergency exit" sign and facing the open space. The light from the skylight shines on me, and the presence of someone curled up in a comfy chair seems sociable and soothing (unless they start snoring). Given a choice, I’d decorate my designated spot with a few family photographs and a clinging plant. Alas, there are days when some inconsiderate soul sits in "my" cubicle before I can claim it, and I am forced to skulk in a dark and claustrophobic corner.
