This month's installment of the Smalldoggies Reading Series (2nd Thursday of every month at Cafe Magnolia on 32nd off Hawthorne) starts at 8:00 tonight. There's always a good beer special and a better crowd so show up early for a seat and pick up a special chapbook featuring the night's performers, who are:


Pauls Toutonghi, who's been published in all kinds of places you wish you were published in (or at least I do) and wrote a book called Red Weather. He also graduated from Cornell.

Hannah Pass, who lives in Portland but is from Wisconsin. Check out some of her writing here.

Also Riley Michael Parker! You know this guy right? Here's an interview with him.

The evening also features a special reading by David Van Dusen and music by Mode7.
