Rob Spillman, co-founder of the legendary Tin House magazine, will read from his intimate, entertaining memoir, All Tomorrow’s Parties (Grove Atlantic), in which he narrates a colorful, literary, and music- filled coming-of-age portrait of an artist’s life that is also a cultural exploration of a shifting Berlin. After, he’ll give a talk called “Editor, Edit Thyself,” about being an editor and having his book edited.

The event is free with the purchase of a book, or $10 without. Beer, wine, coffee, and food will be available in the Little Oddfellows cafe above the reading.

Spillman will also teach a class at Hugo House, Establishing Authority.

Recommended by The Stranger.
