Your Place

To celebrate our 98th print issue with our amazing community of readers, we’re throwing a party! See update below!

We’re sure that many of you have already devoured our Summer 2020 Print Edition. But the good news is, there’s yet more to love! We’re inviting some of the contributors that made this issue so fantastic to talk more about the books they reviewed, art they made, and conversations they had, and you’ll be in the front row from the comfort of your own home.

This summer spectacular will be casual, fun, and a great opportunity to bring back together so many faces we’ve missed seeing—just click the link below to sign up and join us on Tuesday, July 21 at 7 pm Central Time. For 45 minutes, you’ll be treated to a behind-the-scenes tour, chats with writers, special announcements, and more. There might also be some exciting surprises in store — follow us on social media this week for those reveals!

Exciting update: We’re pleased to announce that joining us for the party will be cover artist Jil Evans, who’ll treat us to a tour of her studio; Minnesota Book Award winner James P. Lenfestey, who will talk about Native American literature and Louise Erdrich (see his Rain Taxi piece at LitHub here!), and reviewer Tyrone Williams in conversation with poet Xandria Phillips on their award-winning debut collection Hull. Rain Taxi director Eric Lorberer will host, and our own Linda Stack-Nelson and Mary Moore Easter will be chiming in too.

AND DON'T FORGET: everyone who registers and attends gets entered into a raffle for a prize package for a Rain Taxi “Print Matters” tote, tee shirt, and chapbook of your choice!

We’re so excited to be back to doing events with our amazing community. We can’t wait to have you join us at our Summer Issue Virtual Party!
