Monica Drake reading in Los Angeles! Oct 24th!

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

Hey, L.A. Friends! Let's all go meet Monica Drake, author of Clown Girl, this coming Saturday!

Saturday, October 24 – BLACK BOOT ISSUE #7 RELEASE PARTY – 8 PMPoets who know how to shake their asses. Music that won’t make you want to hurl rotten produce at some maudlin, narcissistic, gaunt singer-songwriter in painted-on jeans. Cheap refreshments to assuage the painful economic downturn. A magazine for the people! If you’ve ever been stuck in a water closet with The Austere Urn Review, you’ll appreciate how we get down. Please join us. $5 gets you in the door… and a copy of Issue 7 for only $2! Stories from Monica Drake (Clown Girl, Hawthorne Books), Steven Heighton (Afterlands, Harcourt), and poetry from the amazing Sierra Nelson and Ariana Kelly. Doors open at 7:30 for mingling.
