The Kraken Reading Series is an independent reading series based in Denton, TX, and features poets from across the country. The series is especially dedicated to poets putting out their first books and expanding their audiences. All readings take place at Paschall at 122 N Locust St on Denton Square (above Andy's Bar). Readings begin at 6 PM sharp, and are free and open to the public. Per venue policy, all attendees must be 21 or over to enter Paschall.
