Pecha Kucha returns to The Vintage in Scranton

The speed-slideshow presentation known as Pecha Kucha returns to The Vintage in Scranton this coming Saturday, January 26! Twenty slides, twenty seconds apiece, no going back! Several NEPA bloggers will be involved in this event, including co-administrator Michelle Hryvnak Davies. I will also be presenting "A Brief History of NEPA Blogs," covering the first seven years of the site in six minutes and forty seconds!

Pecha Kucha night will take place at the new location of the Vintage, 326 Spruce Street in Scranton. The last time Pecha Kucha was at the Vintage it was standing room only.  Presentations start at 7:30, so be there early to get a good seat!
