Come celebrate with Octopus Books and Poor Claudia as Bad Blood turns 21 with Mathias Svalina, Amy Lawless, Tyler Brewington and Kelly Schirmann. Come find us at ADX on Saturday, Dec. 14. Tell your acquaintances, bring your friends.
We are starting one hour later than usual. Doors at 8. Poems at 8:30 sharp. We’ll treat you with some poetry ephemera made special for the event, and beer from our friends, Gigantic Brewing. Also, please remember to bring a few big boy bills for the books table. It’ll be free to get in, and there’ll be a happy jar at the bar.
Also, the party will keep going into the next day. Bad Blood’s presses, Octopus Books and Poor Claudia, will be tabling at Publication Fair downtown at The Cleaners from 12 to 6.
