The Magic Barrel, Oct 19

This Friday the Linn Benton Food Share invites you to share a drink with a gaggle of local authors including OSU’s Elena Passarello andJohn Larison of Whisky When We’re Dry fame. Also present for readings will beNick Dybek, Omar El Akkad, Dionisia Morales, Sam Roxas-Chua, Mary Szybist and Leni Zumas.

Beer, wine and other liquid goodies will be available for purchase alongside some wonderful books, courtesy of Grass Roots. Pick up a few and get them signed while live music from the Perkins, Bliss, Brassfield and Pfender Quartet fills the air between readings.

Buying tickets ahead of time gets you through the gate for just $12, however you can still gain entry at the door for $15. All proceeds go towards feeding those in need, so feel free to procrastinate and fork over the couple of extra bucks for a great cause.

The Magic Barrel starts at 7pm (doors at 6pm) at Whiteside Theater, 361 SW Madison Ave.
