Next week, some of Vancouver’s homegrown literary magazines will be taking over Little Mountain Shop in Mount Pleasant.
The live nightly readings will all revolve around a central theme, like nerd-lit or comedy/standup, as well as an attractive free-to-practically-free cover charge. Over the week, the events will feature over 25 writers, artists, and comedians, with plenty of special guests.
Little Mountain Shop will be open from 11 am – 7 pm with local books and magazines for purchase, and events will start nightly from 7:30 pm.
