For some, the arrival of the Cooper River Bridge Run represents the culmination of months of training. For others, it’s a time to stay far away from downtown. But for us bookish types, it means it’s time for the annual Bridge Run Reading at Blue Bicycle Books.

Now in its 13th year, the event is hosted by BBB owner, local writer, and CP contributor Jonathan Sanchez, who will spend about 20 minutes reading an original story inspired by the massive event. Show up at 7:30 p.m. on March 31 for wine and PowerBars, and the reading starts at 8 p.m. Call (843) 722-2666 or go to for more.
