The Double Take Reading Series is organized by author and editor Albert Mobilio. Authors are asked to pick a partner and write about an experience they shared together, resulting in two original shorts about the same topic from different perspectives. Before the Double Take series, Mobilio also organized the Mad as Hell reading, asking authors to read pieces that spewed anger, vitriol, and despair.
