Issue 37 Launch Party! / by Washington Square

New Yorkers, please join us this Saturday night for the launch party of our latest issue! Readings by Amy Hempel and Tommy Pico. Beer and wine provided. And, of course, copies of the issue for sale. Co-sponsored with the PEN World Voices Festival.

Amy Hempel is the author of four short story collections, later gathered and published in a single volume by Scribner, "The Collected Stories of Amy Hempel" (2006). Described in The New York Times Book Review as "You read her stories and wonder, Why are they so wonderful? The answer comes to you at the very end of this volume, in a line toward the close of 'Offertory.' 'Because a human being made this.' That's all you need to know. Take it slowly. You'll see what I mean."

Tommy Pico is the founder and editor-in-chief of birdsong and the author of "absentMINDR" (VERBALVISUAL, 2014). You can read some of his poems here, here, here, and elsewhere.
