Guy and Liz Choate are working to bring literacy, community and talent to the North Little Rock area. The Argenta Reading Series began in January and has seen major growth, with an average of 65 people attending events.
“When people read to you, it’s an intimate experience, especially when they’re reading they’re own words,” said Guy Choate, ARS director. “I think people are looking for that kind of intimacy within their own communities.”
ARS is nominated for a Black Apple Award and has partnered with the Laman Library to host a high school writing contest awarding a $1,000 scholarship.
