Left Margin LIT Reading at Novel Brewing in Oakland

February 6, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm UTC+0

We’re partnering with Novel Brewing Company, the most literary brewery in the East Bay, to celebrate the sublime tandem of books and beer!

Left Margin instructors and friends Shanthi Sekaran, Porter Shreve, Faith Adiele, David Roderick, and Melanie Abrams will read from their work. We’ll also have a table there so you can learn more about our programs, events, classes, and work space for writers.

We’ve already sampled Novel’s winter lineup of beers, including BOOK THIEF IPA, DUST JACKET IPA, and THE POET, which is super-sour (of course). Delicious doesn’t even begin to describe what happens on your palate when you order a whole flight.

There’s also a BOOK SWAP! You can bring in as many books as you like, and the ones that don’t find a new home will go into Novel’s book stash earmarked for their Little Lending Library. The swap begins at 7:00 pm and the rules are: (1) add your book(s) to the cart with an index card that has your name, and a bit of why the book is a great read. (2) What’s the best part? If someone takes your book home to read, you get $1 off your next pint!

Come one, come all. It’s going to be an epic event.
