Whistling Shade is still going strong! One the first journals in Minnesota where I got my start, they're celebrating an all new issue!
The Winter 2010 number will feature a review of literary cafes in the Twin Cities, a powerful memoir by Maryla Neuman about her time in Auschwitz, Hugh Mahoney on John Dos Passos, another Central American misadventure by Justin Teerlinck, some simply wonderful poems and stories, and more.
The issue release is Wednesday, January 27 at Merlins Rest (3601 E Lake St. Minneapolis) starting around 7. Get there by 7:30 and do the pub quiz. In any case, stop by and have a pint with them!
