Cracked Walnut is in the business of literary readings. We organize readings in traditional and non tradition spaces in the Twin Cities Metro Area to procure a love for spoken literature, community and creativity.


Cracked Walnut has been around for two and half years and we’ve made many friends along the way. Here’s a letter from Satish Jayaraj to all the friends and fans of Cracked Walnut about his experience with what we have all accomplished so far.
