This Saturday, Lit Crawl MN returns for a night of beer, books, pop-up shopping, and performances in a variety of locations (mostly) in south Minneapolis. Bryant-Lake Bowl will host a slew of happenings throughout the evening, including literary quote-themed bingo with Coffee House Press, “speed-dating” sessions where folks will be paired up with books, a Books and Bars reading group meet-up, and a talk hosted by the Current on Minnesota music history with local authors Andrea Swensson, Jim Walsh, and Cyn Collins, moderated by Jay Gabler (who is also City Pages’ theater critic). Barbette will host competitive storytelling, as well as a few readings from poets and other POC writers, including one notable talk, titled “Black Poets on Building a Spaceship to Get the Fuck Out.” Other participating businesses include Magers & Quinn, Soo Visual Arts Center, and the Soap Factory.
