You all know that Columbia is a great town for book people. One of the reasons for that is that it’s the home of one of the most prestigious literary periodicals in the country, The Missouri Review. Given the magazine’s peerless reputation, both nationally and internationally, a collaboration with TMR has long been a goal of the festival, and so we’re very excited to announce that on Thursday April 18, we’ll be kicking off this year’s festival with an event at Skylark Bookshop celebrating The Missouri Review’s work in audio recording.
The evening will feature a couple of brief selections from the Missouri Review audio archives, and will also include a short reading from short story writer and novelist (and one of this year’s Unbound guests) Joanna Luloff, whose first fiction publication was in TMR as the winner in fiction of the Jeffrey E. Smith Editors' Prize.
Beer, sparkling wine, and gourmet snacks will be served, TMR swag will be available, and of course there will be conversation and good fellowship in true Unbound abundance. The event starts at 7:00 p.m.
Tickets are free (of course) but EXTREMELY LIMITED. Go here to reserve yours.
Hope to see you there!
