The longest-running series of its kind in the country, this month’s installment of Intermedia Art‘s Queer Voices Reading Series features five accomplished writers—including Twin Cities artistic treasure Venus de Mars, award-winning Jessie Chandler, novelist Christina Glendenning, Lavender columnist Ellie Krug, and poet Paul Canada Nemeth—sharing some of their work. We’ve making a habit of recommending these reading nights because they really do have some of the best writing talent in MPLS + STPL that, if you’re at all a fan of the written word, you shouldn’t miss. 7:30 PM. $5-25 suggested donation. —Tracy Oxford
