Pymalion Festival Lit Crawl 9/27

This week we are thrilled to be co-sponsoring the the Pygmalion Festival, Champaign-Urbana's four-day festival of music and literature. The lit portion of this year's festival showcases a huge number of amazing authors, including Matthew Gavin Frank, Jamaal May, Richard Siken, Alissa Nutting, Charlotte Pence, and so many more—plus a book fair on Saturday, September 27, where you can find books by our visiting authors AND some of the best indie journals and presses in the country.

After the book fair, on Saturday, from 4-6 p.m., a few of those journals and presses will be hosting the Lit Crawl, two hours of quick, fun readings by 24 writers in some of our favorite venues in downtown Champaign. We hope you'll come down and enjoy a drink and hear some fast fantastic fiction and poetry by these terrific authors!
