That’s this Tuesday, 8 January. The event starts at 7:30pm and will feature “poetry, fiction, and other literary sundries” by myself as well as Heather Marie Vernon, Daniela Olszewska, Melissa Severin, Meghan Lamb, and the brilliant Virginia Konchan:

2013 is the year of the snake in the Chinese Zodiac (the snake is considered a good omen in a house as a sign the family would not starve). All things will be possible this year, and saving money and being thrifty will be rewarded by the gods. Wine and refreshments provided, and special prizes offered to those born in the year of the snake.

High Concept Laboratories is located at 1401 W. Wabansia Ave. (Chicago).

You should come!
