Whistling Shade Issue Release Party: Basement Spook Edition!

Whistling Shade release parties, in which the lastest issue of the beloved lit mag is launched with an evening of collaborative readings, are always a treat. The latest event will also include a few tricks. In honor of Whistling Shade's Horror issue, we'll be hosting a special reading in the store's basement featuring hair-raising fiction and poetry from David Fingerman, Sten Johnson, Rebecca Jones and Tony Rauch.
