Hello Gist Street,

Fall is here. There's soup on the stove, a pumpkin on the front porch, and a sweater on the dog. It's time to take a break from looking at all those leaves and head on over to James Simon's Sculpture Studio on Friday, November 7th. We're featuring the amazing poet Miriam Levine and the fantastic fiction writer Ellen Litman.

Doors open at 7:15; readings begin at 8:00. It's $5. There's a raffle, where you might win books (which will also be for sale), eggs, a drawing by John Fleenor, or rumor has it there might be something "knitted."

BYOB. BYOB. Also, if you have any extra Halloween candy sitting around. We can certainly clean that up for you. Post-election celebratory enthusiasm?We'll take that as well.

That's 305 Gist Street, Uptown, 3rd floor. http://www.giststreet.org/ for bios and directions. Gist Street is also now a "group" on Facebook. If you know what that means, you know what to do.

Hope to see you there!
