Join Lit Cleveland for our 3rd annual book swap party! For every book you bring, you'll receive a raffle ticket that will allow you to exchange it for another book. This is a great chance to re-gift some books you no longer want and pick up some new-to-you summer reads. Market Garden is generously donating a dollar from every beer purchased, so drink up! Magazines in good condition welcome, too. Leftover reading material will be donated to Seeds of Literacyand Cleveland Books 2 Prisoners.
Featured readers include NEOMFA alumni Brandon North, Emily Troia, and Andrew Wehmann. Looking to read a recent poem, short story, or other written piece? You're in luck! We'll have three open mic slots available -- sign up on a first come, first serve basis.
