On Saturday, March 18, Ben Seretan (above, Brooklyn) along with Host (not pictured, Providence) will make music in your ears and minds. This is a free event but bring your wallet because you'll probably want to buy some of the singers' merch. Will there be drinks? I don't know, what are you bringing? Starts at 7pm.
Join us on February 28th for a night with Elena Passarello and Lucas Mann. Elena will be reading from and talking about her new book Animals Strike Curious Poses (pictured above). Lucas Mann will lead a Q & A and we will all be captivated. Plus: free wine! So set aside some time on the last day of this dreaded month. The fun begins at 7pm.
and Tycho Horan (you totally know him already) 'll be doing poems at Ada Books on Saturday, Feb. 11th, round 6pm. There will be the usual wines and snacks (sorry, no ice cream cones*) and new chairs (now 10% more comfortable!) So we'll see you there, right?
*Unless you bring your own.**
** Please don't bring your own.
She's back and she's better than ever! Ottessa Moshfegh returns for a fanfuckingtabuloustic reading from her new collected stories, HOMESICK FOR ANOTHER WORLD (pictured above). When, you ask? When? When? When, you pant? See below!
Ottessa Moshfegh will read from and sign upon her new book on Friday, January 27th, at 7pm. The books and the wine will go fast, so get there early (and buy two!)

On Saturday, October 22nd, two Albany poets, Matthew Klane & James Belflower, will uncork art from their lungs while you sit in wonderment, silently trying to get a hold of yourself. Snacks and drinks will be provided. It's free and the fun starts at 6pm. Don't dis it!
