Third Man Books at Sauvage for a Nashville -Micro- Poetry Festival

Third Man Books is excited to participate in Et Al.'s Micro Poetry Festival at Sauvage Galerie this Saturday, April 15th. We'll be joining other independent poetry presses and have a table set up in the backyard slinging some of our own poetry titles (maybe even some special editions?) and enjoying the readings of TMB poet Ciona Rouse as well as seven other local poets. The event is free, but donations are appreciated. More information from the Facebook event below. We hope to see you there!
