Local literary magazine MAKE celebrates the release of its new issue, titled “This Everyday” and featuring contributions from Stephen Elliot, Laura Gabel-Hartman, Dan Beachy Quick, Caroline Picard and more. The release event features readings from contributors Rob Schlegel, Robert Duffer, Brian Anderson and Emil Ferris, musical performances from Leroy Bach and Marvin Tate, plenty of giveaways and, if I know MAKE, lots and lots of beer. The ten-dollar admission nabs you a copy of the issue, which boasts MAKE’s new redesign. (Tom Lynch)
