Twincy is awfully lucky to provide the home turf for Coffee House Press, nationally renowned for producing award-winning books that amplify underrepresented voices. We’re also lucky that each year they welcome us into their cozy-comfy maze of a Nordeast studio space for their annual cookie potluck and book sale. Enjoy an wide-ranging spread of cookies (some inspired by recent CHP publications–last year’s included an anchovy-studded number), DJ tunes, snowflake crafts, and complimentary wrapping of the stacks of books you pick up. In addition to the nibbles and sharp-minded company, you can expect a few surprises, from sing-alongs to cookie competitions. Wednesday, December 12, 5-8 PM. Free (bring a plate of cookies if you can). —Isabelle Wattenberg
