Come get weird with us as we celebrate Issue 55 of McSweeney’s Quarterly Concern!
Tuesday, March 19th, 7:30 pm
Issue 55 gathers fiction from Laura van den Berg, Gordon Lish, T Kira Madden, and Emma Copley Eisenberg, to name a few; letters about face masks and puttanesca and the rapid disintegration of our natural world by R. O. Kwon, Alexander Chee, and Jack Pendarvis; a searing nonfiction piece by José Orduña that harkens back to shoe-leather journalism, chronicling his experience at immigrant-rights demonstrations across the spectrum of activism; oh, and a 16-page section of mesmerizing photography by Pelle Cass from his series “Crowded Fields.” Read and be renewed!
