Timothy McSweeney’s Grand 50th Issue Release Party
August 22, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Did you know McSweeney’s glorious 50th issue is due August 29th? That’s right, FIFTY! We’ve pulled all the stops for this one, including can’t-miss new work from writers who we’ve long published — Jonathan Lethem, Lydia Davis, Sherman Alexie, Etgar Keret, Sheila Heti, Diane Williams, Sarah Vowell, John Hodgman, Steven Millhauser (among many others) — and fantastic new writing from authors who we’ve long admired, including Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Thomas McGuane, Kevin Young, and Carrie Brownstein. The book itself will be hardback with a dust jacket that folds into two different covers, and folds entirely open to a poster by Tucker Nichols. Choose whatever cover fits your mood, or tack it to the wall and reveal the gem hidden underneath. OKAY, we’ve said enough, now to why we’re really here….
It’s a party! There will be drinks (by Fort Point Beer Company) and mingling and happy moments to share. If we figure out the sound system, there may even be music. (Group meditation is cool, though, right?)
