Issue 5 Launch Party!

May 5, 2015

Put on your thermal goggles and hazmat suit. Issue 5’s mighty awesomeness has leaked into the atmosphere and it is only a matter of time before everyone is affected by the complete and utter wilderness of this issue. Symptoms may include feral tendencies toward flowers, academia, trees, dudes named Bob, marriage, Pokemon, and Sailor Moon, and an ebullient spirit towards the grotesque. Expect otherworldiness, gold light, sudden remarkable club scenes.
Join us at Book Court for a wild night of readers from The Atlas Review’s freshest fifth issue! Friday, May 22nd. Wine and smacks will be served.
THE PLAYERS:
Debbie Kuan
Hilary Leichter
Serena Solin
Rita Bullwinkel
Lillian-Yvonne Bertram
Roberto Montes
Andrew Cothren
Sarah Sala
Maya Weeks
Nicole Miller
