Join Rain Taxi at the Uptown Art Fair! All fairgoers and art lovers are invited to come by our booth and take a free copy of our quarterly book review, packed with great ideas about how to engage with the art of literature. Each day we will also feature a variety of literary activities with local artists, including:

What I See: Participants will be given prompts to create a short piece of writing about what they have seen that day at the Fair. Friday, 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm and 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Poetry Tarot: Poets with insight will read the participant’s cards and produce a personal poem for them to take home. Saturday, 11:00 am - 1:00 pm and 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Comics Come Alive: Participants will create and illustrate a short comic with the aid of local cartoonists. Sunday, 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The Art of Erasure: With our help, participants can take a page from books and magazines we’ll have on hand and then cross out words, allowing a poem to emerge from the remaining language. All three days!

Plus, Take a Poem, Leave a Poem: Got a poem you want to share? We’ll listen to it. Interested in hearing one? Local poets will give you a personal reading from their work. All three days!
