Dress like a librarian and come DANCE. TO. LITERATURE. (collaborations between local authors and musicians, spun for you by DJs Andrew Shuta and Robert Felix), immerse yourself in the nonstop literary multimedia environment we're creating for you, for you. Just for you.
LIVE READINGS! by local and national authors, including Ander Monson, Amelia Gray, Jake Levine, Drew Krewer, and many many more.
NO INTRODUCTIONS! NO ANNOUNCEMENTS! NO STOPPING! NO WAITING! The music starts and the music does not stop, not even when they're reading (we've got people making the music for that).
LIVE MUSIC TOO! Featuring:
B4SKIN WAR NERD (debut performance)
Come ready to fill your arms with books (we'll be binding live in the storefront on Congress for the three days leading up to the event — and don't worry what you'll do with the books, we'll have hat/coat/bag/book check available at the event):
SPORK 9.1 official release! Chapbooks by: Drew Krewer, Jake Levine, Dan Beachy-Quick, Gordon Massman
CONSTRUCTION OF A COMPLETELY UNREASONABLE BOOK! For no reason other than it'd be cool to do it, we're making a completely unreasonable book in the middle of all this. You'll dance next to it.
ALSO, bring any books you would like to donate to Read Between the Bars (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Read-Between-the-Bars/108267683221?ref=ts). They will be partying with us that night. Any books would be great, but in the interest of literature, and bettering our society, maybe you got a copy of some classic literature lying around. Whatever you have, bring it down. They can't have books on martial arts, porn and, well stuff you might expect they can't have. RBTB accepts donations of packaging materials and tape, paperback books in good condition and office supplies. They are also looking for a bigger space to house their books.
We'll break out our reading glasses and head on down there. More details here.
