WHAT: The official Chicago release of this amazing anthology, MAKE X: A Decade of Literary Art, from featherproof books.

SO WHAT: This fantastic book release will feature a BarBookQue (aw the time honored tradition of puns) with some tasty offerings including world-renowned pulled pork, coleslaw, baked beans, veggie burgers, Vitner’s potato chips, and more! Starting at 3:00pm, Adam Burke will act as host while contributors to the book and friends of MAKE (including authors Kathleen Rooney and Martin Seay; visual artist John Sparagana; Chicago historian Paul Durica; Mexico City-based poet Luis Felipe Fabre via video; and many more) will highlight their personal favorite sections of the anthology. There will be a not-to-be-missed live performance from Chicago writer and musician Marvin Tate. He’ll be accompanied by the guitarist Bill MacKay, with visuals by Kim Alpert. Throughout the afternoon there will also be rotating DJs, including poet Fred Schmalz!

NOW WHAT: This spectacular event is free to attend! You can pre-purchase food tickets, a copy of MAKE X, and a copy of The Universe in Miniature in Miniature for $30!
