A Novel Idea: Bookstore Fundraiser & Reading

South Philadelphia residents Alexander Schneider and Christina Rosso-Schneider are opening A Novel Idea, an independent bookstore in East Passyunk, this winter.

A Novel Idea will feature both new and used books, as well as offer a variety of events. The goal is that it will become a place known for great books, merchandise, and events, but also a space where community is fostered. Alexander and Christina are kicking things off with a fundraiser & reading event at Tattooed Mom!

Any contributions or donations are greatly appreciated–whether they be gently used books, monetary donations, or purchases at the event.

Admission is free.
This event is 21+

Readers include:
Christina Rosso-Schneider
Nicholas Perilli

MAD HOUSE 4: Johnson-Valenzuela, Schwartz, Myers, Colavita, Sutherland

Mad House Magazine presents a melodious showcase of poetic artistry in anticipation of Mad House Vol 4: REVOLT!

Gathered beautifully as it pupates from frantic emailing to layout stages, they will be selling preorders of the issue in order to have enough capitalist labor coupons to print copies in gorgeous full-color for everyone who wants one (& hopefully a few extra for people of the future who don’t know it exists yet).

Enjoy the perceptive, ungovernable work of these [5] poets:

+Sara Schwartz

+Gina Myers

+Angelo Colavita

+Marissa Johnson-Valenzuela

+Kirwyn Sutherland

Help us out by dropping in $10 for your copy and you’ll have our love and we’ll have a magazine waiting for you on reading night ♥

+Plus+ get a free copy of A SLENDER VOLUME little anthology zine! 🙂

Doors at 7:30, Reading to start by 8
50¢ pierogi from noon – 10pm
