Books and Beer FAQ

Here are some frequently asked questions about the June 9 2018 reading event.

Where is it?
Summits Wayside Tavern, in the back room behind the taps.
Address is 3334 Stone Mountain Hwy, Snellville, GA 30078.

When is it?
June 9, 2018 at 7:30pm.  We'll go for a couple of hours unless lots of readers show up.
We'll fit everyone in.

Is there a deadline to signup?
Yes.  If you are reading, or even just coming to listen, shoot me an email at by June 6 2018.  I need to notify the venue so they can staff up.

Who can read?
Writers will read in these groups:

1. Writers with a published book read first.  It can be self-published or traditional.  It can be print or electronic.

2. Writers read from books that are ready for pre-order but have not published yet.

3. Writers read from any kind of work, even if it's not ready for purchase.

How does this event benefit the local food co-op?
Writers should bring two copies (or more) for donation to the raffle.
All proceeds from the raffle benefit the local co-op.

Can I sell copies of my glorious work?
Hell yes!  Bring a bunch of copies to sell.  Bring a pen and be prepared to autograph copies.
Be prepared to sign the writhing body parts of your new groupies.  Be prepared for fame and fortune.

Can I invite others?
Absolutely.  Bring friends, family, emotional support peacocks, whoever.

I write songs, not books.  Can I participate?
Yes!  The venue is small, so don't bring lots of elaborate equipment.

I write non-fiction.  Can I participate?

I write neo-nazi manifestos that degrade others that don't look or think like me.  Can I participate?
No.  You're a dick.

What is the schedule of events?
I cordially despise schedules.  I have too many in my life already.  But, if you insist, here's a vague outline:

7:00 - sign in and buy a beer; meet-and-greet
7:30 - start reading
7:45 - raffle drawing
?:?? - continue reading and raffling until we're done
