Don’t forget, citizen: The best place to get your reading material is from Austin’s own Malvern Books or Half Price Books or Black Pearl Books or BookPeople or BookWoman stores – in person or online. (And for the ultimate in vintage collectors’ editions and unique works on paper, we recommend the excellent South Congress Books.)Or try Bookshop.org in general – because Bookshop, unlike the online behemoth named after a river, shares the profits among all its independent-bookstore members.
Featuring Tina Cardona and Kelly Ann Ellis, co-founders of the nonprofit HotPoet, Inc., for an evening in celebration of Letters Sent Inland: Selected Poems of Glynn Monroe Irby. Cindy Huyser hosts; an open mic follows.
