Are you in Houston?
Would you like to hang out with some interesting people, hear some poetry and fiction, get a free magazine, and eat tasty food?
Are you free this evening (that would be Friday, May 1st)?
Then come on down to the University of St. Thomas for the Spring 2009 Laurels reading/mad tea party! There will be poetry! And homemade scones! And silly hats!
Parking will cost $2 unless you are lucky enough to find a spot on the street, but for that $2 you get a nice and well-lit parking garage extremely close to the event! Also, there is no charge for the food or magazine, so you are probably getting the better end of this pricing deal.
The reading is in Guinan Hall, in the downstairs lobby. It is basically across the little intersection from the Moran Center parking garage entrance, as you can clearly see on this map here.
The reading starts at 7:30 PM and ends when we damn well say so (probably around 9-ish, no later than 10), which leaves you plenty of time to go out and party afterward, to make up for the lack of booze at the actual event (no booze allowed in the dorm, sorry. Maybe next semester will be the kegger/reading hybrid we are so looking forward to trying out).
I will be the one wearing the octopus.
