The first – and maybe last – iteration of our own little literary festival comes to the downstairs bar on Wednesday, June 7 and Thursday June 8, both nights at 7 PM.

On the 7th, we feature Andrew Paxman, presenting his book ‘Jenkins of Mexico: How a Southern Farm Boy Became a Mexican Magnate’ published by Oxford University Press, and Joshua Neuhouser, with his translation of Sergio González Rodríguez’ ‘The Iguala 43: The Truth and Challenge of Mexico’s Missing Students’ published by Semiotext(e)/MIT Press.

On the 8th, we bring two poets, Robin Myers, who will read from her new book ‘Amalgama/Conflations’ which is in both Spanish and English en face (that rare and oh-so-helpful format) published by Edicíones Antílope. Joining her is the return of Dylan Brennan, who stunned audiences here and around the globe with his book ‘Blood Oranges’ and returns with a trippy, historographical prose chapbook titled ‘Guadalupe’ which is bound to be brilliantly strange and inflammatory as all his work.

Both readings begin at 7 PM, free admission. Cash bar, full menu, all are welcome to stay and enjoy after the readings. Bookstore open by request, and punk vinyl dj set after Thursday’s reading.
