Hosted by writer/folksinger TJ Kong, Writers Night In America is a monthly event wherein the inimitable host features writers reading, and then chatting. Each writer reads a piece or two, and then Kong conducts a short and snappy interview, chat-show style. For this special 215 Fest edition, Kong will be a house band as he hears from and talks with a wide variety of local and national writers, including Nicholson BakerBruce GrahamSarah Rose EtterNicolas EspositoJacqueline GoldfingerElizabeth ScanlonBrian Warfield and more.

The house band will be The Can Jam Band. They are a TJ Kong side project that includes the bassist from Kong – Joshua J.A.M Machiz, Alex Maio on drums, Chris Aschman on steel drum and trumpet and Frankie Velardo on guitar and lead vocals. They are a never-ending ball of energy playing the hits like they have been locked inside of a shuttered basement for 25 years.
