Renowned for hosting some of the hottest literary events in town, Rain Taxi presents a double whammy of international award-winning authors this September!  First up is an evening with Russian author Gary Shteyngart on Sept. 24—that one is a ticketed event, but you get a signed book with your ticket and this best-selling absurdist will have you rolling in your seats.  Then on Sept. 30, Rain Taxi editor Eric Lorberer will be in conversation with Olga Tokarczuk, this year’s Man Booker International Award winner (and the first Polish author ever to take this big prize)—this one’s a free event, at 4 pm on a Sunday so you can still party hard after.  And speaking of book parties, don’t forget Rain Taxi’s annual all-day hoopla, the Twin Cities Book Festival, on October 13—more behind the scenes info on that for SotC readers to come!
