We should all probably read more, but it’s such a solitary pursuit. Sometimes you just want to be where other people are. That’s where the inaugural Spokane Silent Reading Party comes in, inviting the public to gather together in one space and read in silence. A trend in larger cities for some time, INK Art Space is hosting the quiet reading event next Thursday. For those afraid of things getting too quiet, some live music from local classical guitarist and teacher John Paul Shields is included. People of all ages and reading levels are free to come and go over the course of the two-hour event, as long as they follow the rules of reading in silence.
