A benefit for the community and your bookshelf

CLMP's Lit Mag Marathon kicks off this weekend! The fun starts with the Magathon from 4:30-6:00pm on Friday, June 9 in the New York Public Library's Periodicals Room. The editors of (almost) all your favorite journals will read their favorite pieces from recent issues.

Moreover, if you’re in need of some lit mags (and who isn’t?), be sure to stop by the Lit Mag Fair at the Housing Works Used Book CafĂ© where you can get them at only $2 a copy and be philanthropic at the same time. Proceeds go to Housing Works, a nonprofit organization serving homeless people living with AIDS, and to The Council of Literary Magazines and Presses, a nonprofit organization serving independent literary publishers. The Lit Mag Fair lasts from 12:00-5:00pm on June 10, and you can be sure you’ll find issues of Indiana Review there, and hundreds of others.
