Flyer with a collage of a person in a cave with a flashlight, clouds in the sky, grassy mountain terrain, and oranges. The text reads as follows: The Future is Ahead five poets & open mic Sat 9/30 6–8 p.m. Iffy Books 319 N. 11th St. Room 2I (ring the doorbell to iffy books + vox populi) masks encouraged
~ // THE FUTURE IS AHEAD // ~ will feature 5 poets, then an open mic (in which perhaps YOU may close us out?). Doors at 6:00, first reader at 6:15, open mic from 7:25 until 8:00.
Readings by:
Lydia Host
Evangeline Brooks
Rishi Devi
Dillon Thomas Jones

The Future IS in fact ahead. For this reading’s themes, consider:
Grocery shopping with a full stomach, eraser tops, looking for an omen, a billboard painted like the sky, believing you’ll get what you need, dance class, your favorite trinket, pennies.

We’ll also have time to browse and purchase the incredible books, zines & more here at Iffy Books.

If you’d like to read at the open mic, we ask that you fill out this form first, so we know to expect you!
