Vouched Books will also be joining us! From their website: "Whether we’re reviewing work on our website, hosting a reading, or selling small press books at one of our guerrilla bookstores, the heart of Vouched Books is this: we love small press literature."

Donations will be kindly requested, though no one will be turned away for lack of funds. 

All ages are welcome, though profanity will be present.
