Tonight’s 3rd Thursday: Under the Big Top!

Join us for later open hours tonight and enjoy the circus theme! Each hour there will be a free show from Imagine Circus on the main stage (5:30, 6:30 & 7:30) and we’ll have special circus treats on hand as well as live music with Mike Kaltofen!

  • Featuring Awesome Acrobats – Prepare to be amazed by Imagine Circus’s dynamic duo, Rocco and Nova! This show features jaw-dropping partner acrobatics and lots of silly circus shenanigans.
  • Professor Whizzpop – The Professor Whizzpop Show is a funtastic medley of comic mayhem! The show stars the hapless Professor Whizzpop whose myriad of mishandled magic provides giggles galore as the Professor gets nearly everything wrong and the kids in the audience help to make everything right!
  • Juggling Time with Tain – Tain, also known as “Tain the Knife Juggler,” impresses audiences of all ages with an assortment of awesome juggling skills including balls, clubs, knives, feathers, fruit and a rubber chicken! His energetic personality shines on any stage, big or small, keeping onlookers riveted.
  • Additionally, look for the special stilts performer on Short Central, and of course, the musical stylings of Mike Kaltofen right at Main Street Reads!

Sunday Spectacular: A Season in Lights Book Launch!

Seattle novelist Gregory Erich Phillips has selected Main Street Reads for the virtual launch of A Season in Lights. “Written by a true creative, A Season in Lights paints a moving picture of artists, dancers and musicians. Gregory Erich Phillips weaves together the heartaches and lucky breaks of two main characters, Tom and Cammie, and their friends and families. The vignettes culminate with the impact of coronavirus on NYC, and ends with a surprisingly tender and uplifting finale.” Carol Van Den Hende, award-winning author of Goodbye, Orchid
This event is FREE to all Main Street Reads readers and Pulpwood Queen Bookclub members! Learn More HERE
