7PM WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 8…

PAGE 21 is just around the corner. Hope to see you there!
Joann, Heather and Jill

If you’ve never been to one of these, the performances are extremely short (so *just in case* something’s no good, at least it will be over soon) & there’s usually at least one (actually good performance) by a Six Gallery writer. Also art, food, & wine, plus it’s FREE, so why not?

You can learn more about the series from this interview Jessica Simms did w/ Page’s sages Joann Kielar, Gillian Learner, & Heather Aronson for the After Happy Hour blog.

12/10 After Happy Hour Review Reboot Reading @ Howlers

Posted in Events with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 10, 2019 by 6GPress

7PM TONIGHT…

Since there was no fall issue to launch in 2019, the AHH editors thought this would be a great chance to celebrate the journal’s history and put a face to some of the new names on the masthead.

In that spirit, yinz are all cordially invited to a reading Tuesday, December 10th.

Among the readers are current and former editors, past contributors, and local literary folk whose work matches the aesthetic we look for in the journal.

As always, the reading is free and open to the public (and, oh yes, there will be snacks). So come on out to Bloomfield’s friendly neighborhood dive to help us celebrate the journal’s evolution!
