Redivider: Issue 11.2 Launch Party

4:00-6:00pm, Sweetwater Tavern.

Redivider is hosting a launch party to celebrate their newest issue. The event will include readings from current and past contributors, as well as Laura van den Berg, former Redivider editor-in-chief and author of two critically acclaimed short story collections. We will also have literary trivia and award fabulously nerdy (or nerdily fabulous!) prizes.  Food and drinks will available for purchase as we read and compete at local favorite, Sweetwater Tavern.

Lizard Lounge Poetry Jam

7:30pm-1:00am

Lizard Lounge

This Poetry Jam will feature Shilo Kuriakose, founder and producer at ARTHAmetric and advocate for the arts as a tool for positive self-expression and empowerment towards economic and personal freedom. She'll be accompanied by The Jeff Robinson Trio, a collective comprising of three of Boston’s most well known and heralded musicians, whom will lay down the musical foundation for spoken word performances that have made this event a must see for over 15 years. If you are local to the Boston area, or visiting for the very first time, you owe it to yourself to check out this amazing night — you will never think of live poetry in quite the same way again. ($5)
