Three Tents Reading Series
is a monthly reading series hosted by Mark Cugini and Carrie Murphy at The Big Hunt in Washington, DC. It was created to provide authors who have recently released novels, collections, or chapbooks with independent presses an opportunity to add a major metropolis with a rich literary tradition to their book tour. Three Tents also features upcoming local authors and graduate students, in hopes of bringing these communities closer together.
In 2013, Three Tents was awarded second place in LitBridge’s National Reading Series Contest.
