The Leon Affair: A Reading Series

Join us at Leon for our monthly series: The Leon Affair! This reading series is presented by Derrick Mund and Sommer Browning of Spring Gun Press. Each month these two talented writers and editors bring us a stellar line up of writers to present their works to you.

From our curators of the Leon Affair:

Green & Lewis & Drager & Cabrera & Svalina will be gracing us with their prose and poems and bodies and voices and pheremones this month!

Also, a rare Friday night Leon Affair (our spouse is back from a Nihilist Arby's Convention Saturday night. And even though they said, "I don't know, probably later, like half till dawn past dusk. The world is a bleak and meaningless endless pumping of Arby's cheddar sauce over the mound of nickle thin sliced proccessd beef we harbor as a relationship." It just seems safer to Affair on Friday.)
