Books for the spirit, spirits with your books

UMKC’s literary journal, New Letters, gives you three good reasons to visit the Bier Station at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 18.

Thomas E. Kennedy will read from “Kerrigan in Copenhagen,” a novel masquerading as a guide to the restaurants and pubs of the Danish capital. A prize-winning author, Kennedy has traveled the world and lived abroad, working and writing poetry, essays, fiction and short stories to much critical acclaim.

Robert Stewart, editor of New Letters and publisher of some of Kennedy’s works, will read some new poetry and some favorites from earlier publications. Stewart is editor of New Letters magazine, New Letters on the Air and BkMk Press at UMKC, where he also teaches writing, magazine nonfiction writing and magazine editing.

Finally, there’s the beer – and plenty of other good things to eat and drink.

The reading takes place at the Upstairs Biergarten, accessed through the main entry. Admission to the reading is free, but the drinks are on you.
