Winter got you feeling gloomy? Tempted to spend the rest of the month hiding behind the sofa with a box of Tagalongs and a choccie-stained copy of Either/Or? Fear not, for we have a trifecta of cheering Februarial excitements planned for you at Malvern Books:
- This Thursday, February 6th, at 7pm we’re joining forces with the New Writers Project at the University of Texas at Austin to present a reading with poet Michael Teig. Michael is a founding editor of the brilliant jubilat, and his most recent collection is the awesomely titled There’s a Box in the Garage You Can Beat with a Stick.
- On Sunday, February 9th, at 2pm we’re teaming up with VSA Texas (The State Organization on Arts and Disability) and the Pen2Paper Creative Writing Contest (a project of the Coalition of Texans with Disabilities) to host a friendly, low-volume OPEN MIC for writers and musicians of all ages and abilities. Everyone will be warmly welcomed and encouraged, so please do come by!
- On Wednesday, February 12th, at 7pm our beloved Everything is Bigger reading series returns (check out footage from the first Bigger on our YouTube channel), with the inimitable Tyler Gobble playing host to the alarmingly accomplished Claudia Smith, Dan Boehl, and Laurel Hunt. And for the avaricious amongst you, please note THERE WILL BE RAFFLE PRIZES.
And by the way… Either/Or contains a section entitled “Crop Rotation: An Attempt at a Theory of Social Prudence”—you don’t want to read that! Come to Malvern Books, attend an event or three, and pick up some brand-spanking-new reading material while you’re at it. Check out our front window for a few ideas.
