After an amazing September evening at Karamu House, celebrating the poetry of Tyehimba Jess with the Anisfield-Wolf Book Awards and Twelve Literary and Performance Arts Incubator, we return to the mother ship at Market Garden Brewery October 3 for our sixty-fourth consecutive monthly reading. As always, our readings are free, and we hope you'll help us keep them that way by contributing to our ongoing GoFundMe campaign.
Coming in October:
Eleanor Henderson's debut novel Ten Thousand Saints was named one of the 10 Best Books of 2011 by The New York Times and a finalist for the Award for First Fiction from The Los Angeles Times.

Her second novel, The Twelve-Mile Straight, will be published by Ecco on September 12, 2017.
