Books and Beer: September 15 2018

Our first Books and Beer reading event on June 9 was an unqualified success.  We packed the 'secret' back room at the neighborhood pub with poets, drunks, and other subversives.

Four authors donated books to the raffle, and about $100 went to the local food co-op.  We also had plenty of open-mic participants.

Our next event is planned for Saturday September 15 2018 at 7:30PM.  The Facebook invitation is here:

Address is 3334 Stone Mountain Hwy, Snellville, GA 30078.

We'll fit everyone in.

Is there a deadline to signup?
No.  But the venue is small, and we might have to turn people away.

Who can read?

1. Writers who donate books to the raffle read first.

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.

7:00 - sign in and buy a beer; meet-and-greet
7:30 - group 1 will start reading
?:?? - raffle drawing for books from group 1 writers
?:?? - open mic
