12/23 The Librarian/River Underneath the City Release Party @ Modern Formations

Posted in Events, New Releases with tags , , , , , , , , , on December 16, 2013 by 6GPress

Next Monday, TWO books are being released at ONCE! This is the “Best of Culture” according to Pittsburgh Magazine, whatever that says about our culture:

Book-release parties are always a blast. The author is noticeably excited and flushed, having seen years of toil on a project come to fruition. That feeling is contagious, as audiences universally catch the bug and get in the spirit. Join John Grochalski, author of The Librarian, and Scott Silsbe, who penned the poetry collection The River Underneath the City, as they share excerpts from their newly published works. Taylor Grieshober and Jason Irwin also will be reading at this shindig.
