Malia Mills in East Hampton, a women's swimwear and clothing shop, became a pop-up gallery and space for literary readings for the winter months.
Iris Smyles read two poems, "Bitter Suite" and "The Chocolate Covered Prince," from a new book of poetry and cartoons that she is completing called "Single Life."
Patricia Marx read her short story "Audio Tour," which appeared first in The New Yorker's "Shouts and Murmurs."
Frederic Tuten read "Self Portrait With Circus" from his most recent book of inter-related short stories, "Self Portraits: Fictions."
