The Beginning of Bigger

The inaugural reading in our Everything is Bigger series was an appropriately colossal success. We had a full (and enthusiastic) house, and your post-reading reports suggest that a good time was had by all. Thanks to everyone who came by for an evening of excellent poetry and prose with (left to right) host Tyler Gobble and readers Blake Lee Pate, Dean Young, and Vincent Scarpa.

And if you only came by for an evening of excellent raffle prizes, well, I can’t say I blame you—certain lucky audience members took home assorted delights, including Reese’s peanut butter cups the size of a fat baby and a whimsical belt buckle that features a cowboy riding a pipe-smoking squirrel. Our next Everything is Bigger bash will be on Wednesday, February 12th, so be sure to make a “YAY WORDS!” note in your calendar. (We’ll announce the readers soon; if you follow us on Facebook, you’ll be the first to hear the details.) And to whet your appetite for the return of Bigger, here are a few videos from EIB-the-First (for more footage of this and future events, be sure to check out our smashing new YouTube channel).
