Very excited about this one, since MPLS + STPL: No One Parties Harder Than Our Lit Scene™. It’s the first ever Lit Crawl, a collection of literary-themed events running through book stores, galleries, and restaurants. What’s happening? A round-robin exhibition of art by local cartoonists, and the awarding of Rain Taxi’s coveted “head on fire” prize. An experiment in collaborative multi-panel storytelling graphic novel round-robin at the SooVAC Gallery. A #popcornstoryhour story hour that’s part improv, part reading, part workshop, where authors from Coffee House Press, Graywolf Press, and Milkweed Editions compose stories in real-time. Literary fortune-telling with the booksellers of Magers & Quinn. Life advice from poets at The Loft, which let’s be honest we can all use. The entire crawl is free to attend and ends with what will surely be a crazy party at The Club Room at the Red Stag Supper Club with our fav DJ Shannon Blowtorch.
