Graphic novel publishing house Uncivilized Books kicks off a new happy hour series with some of their artists and authors—plus other party animals from the local literary, publishing, bookselling, and arts community will likely be in attendance—at Modist Brewing on Wednesday. If you’ve been missing the publisher’s other fun events, from the spot at the Lit Crawl to the recent reading of Tsu and the Outliers at Magers & Quinn, you’ve been missing out and here’s a great chance (with great beer) to make up for it. Wednesday, June 13th, 5:30 PM. Free.Tracy Oxford
