Starting tonight at 7:30 p.m., back at Magers & Quinn, a wonderful lineup of writers take stage, celebrating the release of They Could No Longer Contain Themselves, with a reading from Minneapolis author, John Jodzio, also featuring Dessa, Minneapolis hip-hop singer from the Doomtree Collective, and David Philip Mullins’ Greetings From Below.
Dessa will discuss her new book, Spiral Bound, a short collection of essays and poetry, which has been dubbed a “dazzling literary debut” by the City Pages and “witty and desperately honest” by Alive Magazine.
