Join Gigantic in celebrating CLMP’s 10th Annual Lit Mag Marathon Weekend this Sunday, May 31st, at the Literary Magazine Fair hosted by Housing Works bookstore.
The Fair will take place from 12-5pm at Housing Works Used Books Café- located at 126 Crosby Street – just south of Houston Street (just East of Broadway). Subway Directions: take the B,F,V, to Broadway-Lafayette, or the N, R to Prince Street. For more information and directions, please visit their website at: www.housingworks.org.
Choose from hundreds of magazines from all over the country and hobnob with many of the editors who’ll be there in person to meet and greet. Proceeds go to Housing Works, a nonprofit organization serving homeless people living with AIDS, and to The Council of Literary Magazines and Presses, a nonprofit organization serving independent literary publishers.
Break open your piggie banks, roll in your wheelbarrows and get out your coffee table extensions! All lit mags representated at the Fair will be sold for $2!
