Please join us May 23rd at 7 pm for the third annual Shelter House Reading, where three writers will read from the second publication of their anthology, Of the Folk: Ordinary Lines Extraordinary Portraits.

This year’s issue Of the Folk features: a meeting with estranged father at the Laundromat … the woman who carried a butcher’s knife inside her bra … the jutted rock that peaks out the ocean floor … an unlikely friendship … a personal exploration of inheritance … the dawn of a revolution …

Prairie Lights will donate 10% of the day’s sales to Shelter House, Iowa City. If you are unable to attend, you can still support Shelter House by shopping at Prairie Lights on May 23rd.
