Performers at the Grolier have at least one thing in common: They’ve all been published. This certainly sets it apart from many other reading series around town, which tend to mix established authors with up-and-com-ing types. Here, such well-known authors as Steven Dobbins and Deborah Dix have been known to drop by to read from their works. Readings take place at Adams House (no relation to Mine’s publisher) in Harvard Square on Tuesday nights from September through May, and every weekend in October. Best of all, these shows are free, though donations are gratefully accepted.
