This evening, the Ladyfolk and I had an exceptionally poetic night out. We attended a local event called Literary Death Match, which has been hosted in the Twin Cities for 10 years, including tonight’s performance. The first nine took place in Minneapolis, while tonight the show was hosted in St. Paul, for the first time, at Amsterdam Bar and Hall. There’s a bunch to highlight about the night (and to personally critique), but I will leave a majority of that for a specific post.
Tonight I just wanted to share some prizes we won for participating in the pre-show games, which were hosted by Paper Darts and I believe The Tangential. We won a book titled Vacationland by Sarah Stonich, along with book-cover-matching coasters and magnets! The author even came over to sign the book, which was presented to us by Jay Gabler. He doesn’t know, but I know of him and so it was exciting to meet him face to face, even if I was too anxiety-bound to make small talk and shake his hand. I did, however, shake the authors hand… even if she did add a “C” to Jak...
Have you ever heard of Literary Death Match?
