Rain Taxi Reading Series
Rain Taxi sponsors a reading series as a further demonstration of its commitment to literary culture. All events are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted.
Neither of these next two events are readings per se, but they're too cool to miss. Join us this summer for a literary spark and a punch chaser!
Saturday, June 8, Dusk to Dawn
Analog Cave at Northern Spark
213 East 4th Street
Lowertown, St. Paul

Rain Taxi and mnartists.org join forces to create a writer's dream at Northern Spark, the third annual all-night art fest!

Analog Cave combines the tactile intimacy of a handwritten letter with the fleeting immediacy of social media. Throughout Northern Spark, mnartists.org and Rain Taxi Review of Books invite the public to enter our decked-out Imaginarium for a moment of private reflection and contribute a short text or illustration through a variety of analog tools and processes. The crowd-sourced content will undergo a real-time editorial process which will convert the entries into filmic projections, printed objects, drawn posters, or other public displays—all viewable from Bedlam's street-side window in Lowertown. The goal of the project is to create a platform for thoughtful, slowed-down messages which leave behind a physical object.
Wednesday, June 19, 6-8 pm
6 West 6th Street, St. Paul

LitPunch is your opportunity to learn about the Twin Cities literary community!
Join us June 19, 2013 at Amsterdam Bar in Saint Paul from 6–8 p.m. and connect with fellow bibliophiles. You’ll be given a “dance card” for the evening, and be challenged to get signatures from area editors, designers, writers, book reviewers, intern and volunteer coordinators, publicists, event coordinators, fundraisers, and others. You’ll then be eligible to win fabulous literary prizes from the sponsoring organizations. PLUS, the first 20 people who show up with a receipt from a local, independent bookstore will receive a free beer on us. Hope to see you there!
LitPunch is sponsored by Coffee House Press, Graywolf Press, The Loft Literary Center, Milkweed Editions, and Rain Taxi Review of Books.
