AUBURN — Fifteen-year-old Leslie Reed, a Lewiston High School sophomore and self-taught singer-songwriter, will be the guest performer Friday, Aug. 21, at Teen Open Mic Night at the Auburn Public Library.

Reed began songwriting after attending a Carrie Underwood concert.

“I’ve found that the best songs I’ve written come from my heart and experiences that I’ve had or are going through. Whether it’s me seeing this random cute kid at a store and writing a song solely on first glances, or it’s what I get out of a complicated situation my friends and I are going through – it’s just me getting all my random feelings out,” Reed said.

“I try not to use names when I’m angry, but when it’s a happy person, I include them,” she added.

Teen singer-songwriters, instrumental musicians, comics and poets are invited to participate in the open mic beginning at 6 p.m. Audience members are welcome. Bring a can of food for the Auburn Food Pantry if you like.
