As if publishing mind-probing, genre-bending literature isn’t enough, Coffee House Press has a knack for throwing really good parties. Grillables and good beer are on the menu for their summer whizbang, sprawled out by the railroad tracks adjacent to their Nordeast offices. Hob knob with the bright CHP staff, local writers (extra points if Dylan Hicks shows up on a bike!) and other bookishly-inclined residents while you play giant poetry jenga. CHP’s focus on promoting inclusivity and generosity through literature feels terribly important at the moment—and you’ll have the chance to support it with $10 books on sale.
