the dictionary project presents: re·ta·ble

 

On October 26, the dictionary project held our second the dictionary project presents reading featuring Tucson writers writing to the word: re·ta·ble. It was a truly magical, inspired and inspiring evening, hosted at Casa Libre. We constructed an altar in honor of the word, and the readers offerings were poignant, funny, smart, and beautiful. It seems appropriate in this time of harvest and of giving thanks to offer these readings to those of you who could not be with us in person on that evening. Please enjoy these offerings of words and ideas as you consider what people, talismans, gifts are on your own retable.

 

re·ta·ble  (ˈrē-ˌtā-bəl)  n.  [Fr., contr.  <  *reretable; rere (see REAR) + table (see TABLE)], a raised shelf of ledge above an altar for holding altar lights, flowers, etc.

 

A million thanks go to Casa Libre Assistant Director Tc Tolbert for recording and uploading these readings so that we can continue to enjoy them.
