It's That Time Again!

The magazines may be little, but the weekend is big, big, big! It’s time once again for CLMP’s annual Lit Mag Marathon Weekend!

June 10th and 11th
All events are free and open to the public

The Magathon
New York Public Library's DeWitt Wallace Periodicals Room, 5th Ave. at 42nd St.
Saturday, June 10th from 4–6:30 PM
The Magathon kicks off the weekend with a celebratory “marathon” reading. Editors will present selections from their latest issues. Featured magazines include Call: Review, Columbia, Fiction, A Gathering of the Tribes, Gulf Coast, Home Planet News, Lips, Me Three, North Atlantic Review, Opium Magazine, A Public Space, Skidrow Penthouse, SLAB: Sound and Literary Artbook, StoryQuarterly, Swink, Terra Incognita, Tiferet, and Verbatim: The Language Quarterly.

Seventh Annual Literary Magazine Fair
Housing Works Used Book Café, 126 Crosby Street in Soho
Sunday, June 11th 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 present to meet and greet. Proceeds go to Housing Works, a nonprofit organization serving homeless people living with AIDS, and to CLMP, a nonprofit organization serving independent literary publishers.

The fair was founded in 2000 by editors Jenine Gordon Bockman of Literal Latté and Rebecca Wolff of Fence, and has connected thousands of readers and writers by raising the profile of exceptional literary publishers.

This program is made possible with support from the NEA, the New York State Council on the Arts, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs -- and is co-sponsored by the Humanities and Social Sciences Library of The New York Public Library, Fence and Literal Latté.
