, as well as, you know, a ton of literati milling about a gorgeous space, sipping complimentary Brooklyn Lager and having excellent conversations (this could be you!). The whole shebang will be emceed by the very, very funny and Emmy award-winning Laura Krafft, and will definitely be the highlight of your month (which is saying a lot considering October is home to Halloween, everyone’s favorite holy day).

A little about Guernica mag, from the event page:
Guernica: A Magazine of Art & Politics was founded in 2004 and has grown into an indispensable forum for cultural conversation. It has sparked discussions about the environment; published great stories, poems, paintings, and photos from around the world; and weighed in on topics ranging from Roberto Bolano’s literary reputation in the US to food self-sufficiency in Detroit to exhaustive coverage of the invasion and occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan. The magazine has featured heads of state, Nobel Prize winners, literary stalwarts, lawmakers, filmmakers, salsa gods, and cabinet members. Last year, contributor EC Osondu’s story “Waiting” won the Caine Prize, Africa’s largest literary award.
“Guernica has a strong tradition of hosting provocative and exciting cultural events, and Guernica Celebrates 6! promises to provide even more of the energy that our readers and community have come to expect from us,” explained co-founder Michael Archer.
