9th Annual Lit Mag Fair at Housing Works

Housing Works Used Book Café, 126 Crosby Street in Soho
Sunday, June 15th from 12–5PM

Lit fiends can take home armfuls of lit mags discounted more than 50% at only $2 a copy! Choose from hundreds of magazines from all over the country and hobnob with many of the editors who’ll be there in person to meet and greet.

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.

While IR won't be there in person, we will be there in spirit. And in print. Stop by and check us out!
