Why are you sad? Is it because the Southern Writers Reading Series takes place only once a month? Now your troubles are over! Introducing SOWRI—it’s like a Swiss Army knife but for all of your Southern Writers needs. It comes with knifes, duct tape, a toothpick, a miniature banjo, whiskey, a glass eye, the book of Exodus, an mp3 player with recordings by all of your favorite Southern Writers, and much much more. And better yet, it all fits in your pocket. And even better than that it can be yours for FREE simply by coming out on November 14th to the next Southern Writers Reading Series at Happy Ending Lounge (302 Broome St). You’ll experience the phenomenon live with readings by four world-class writers: Paul Legault! Ed Winstead! Sampson Starkweather! and April Heck! And then you can take SOWRI with you wherever you go: the subway, on a rock by the river, Texas, your bed, the laundromat, east Texas, Planet Smoothie, and just about everywhere else. But wait! That’s not all! If you come to the reading on the 14th and get there at 7:30pm you can win a cool and sleek alligator skin carrying case! That way you can look like a legitimate southerner while listening to all of your favorite readings! So be sure not to miss the next Southern Writers Reading Series. I guarantee you won’t find better poetry or prose or multi-purpose pocket-sized gadgets available anywhere on this or any other planet.
