Maybe it should come as no surprise that a party to celebrate the launch of the newest St. Paul almanac seems to have a little bit of everything, but it literally seems like it has a little bit of everything. The literary/travel guidebook features writing from more than 80 local writers, and more than 250 illustrations by local artists. Not to mention the book is a comprehensive guide to the city of St. Paul. The party will feature author readings, art exhibit openings, live local music, local food and drink, and Storymobile (see? a little bit of everything). Oh, and of course you’ll be able to pick up your copy of the 2015 St. Paul Almanac. 7 p.m. Free. —EDJ
