One of the best readings of the year in the QC is coming this Thursday, Aug. 19 at 6:30pm CST, as we celebrate the release of THE ATLAS literary magazine, produced annually by the Young Emerging Writers. Event will be outside of Rozz-Tox (masks required for entry to use the facilities). Copies of the new issue will be available for $10, $5 for back issues. You can also pre-order copies of THE ATLAS 16 via our online bookstore.
We are thrilled this event is part of Alternating Currents Festival & to have some light shine on the terrific writing talent we have in the QC. Event will start off with music from YEW staff & interns & the readings will be followed by Memorywerks Musik (the great Dennis Hockaday). Excellent food & drinks available all night c/o the Rozz-Tox team.
Event is free & open, donations appreciated & support youth education programs at MWC. Always a special night, this one promises to be even more so. Join us…
