Magazine Day: Read, Talk, Snack at Booksmith's First National Magazine Day Celebration
Saturday, February 27
1:00 7:30 PM
Piles of unread magazines falling to the floor and tormenting you? Never again!
Join Booksmith and local writer Kevin Smokler, with co-sponsor Shareable.net, for the First Ever celebration of Magazine Day, a nationwide holiday dedicated to magazines and catching up on the ones you haven't read yet. On the afternoon of February 27, Booksmith will convert itself into a giant magazine reading room. Bring your own unread magazines, share them with others when you're done with them, and pick over Booksmith's magazine racks with impunity (but without coffee stains)
At 6 PM, we'll convene a group of magazine publishers and aficionados to talk about the state of magazine publishing today. Joining moderator Kevin Smokler are Derek Powazek (Fray), Jen Angel (formerly of Clamor), Jeremy Smith (the digital Shareable.net) and Andrew Leland (managing editor of The Believer).
$5 gets you an all-afternoon reading pass, Philz coffee plus yummy snacks, and take-home mags from the communal already-read pile you all amass. And more: presentations by local magazine publishers and discussion groups will happen throughout the day; details on our website. Tickets are available at Brown Paper Tickets or 800-838-3006 and in the store.
