In the second local installment of literary delights for the sweet-of-tooth, Manbites Dog Theater hosts Mouth Candy: Say Ahhh, this Friday at 8:15 p.m. Founded by Indy sweetheart Jenny Canipe, the collective started in Greensboro as an outlet for writers and readers to perform their work. The evening of fiction, non-fiction, music and poetry features local and regional readers Randall Williams (pictured below)–an audience favorite, attorney and writer Maria Mangano, Chatham County’s John Buhrmann and Jon Elliston, and Fiona Morgan, also of The Independent. Lyrical soundtrack will be provided by musical guests Glory in the Meeting House. To get your ahhh on, stop by 703 Foster Street in Durham. $7; reservations recommended. 682-3343 for info, or www.manbitesdogtheater.org.
