Phoenix summers getting you down? Missing all the talks, classes, workshops, and readings? Swing back into the literary season with a casual community get-together at our Summer Social Fundraiser, Saturday, August 25, 2018 at Changing Hands Phoenix (300 W Camelback Rd, Phoenix, AZ 85013) from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
While there will be a brief welcome from Piper Center Director and Arizona inaugural Poet Laureate Alberto Álvaro Ríos at 6:30 p.m., drop by any time to enjoy a beverage with fellow writers and readers, meet the Piper Center staff, and learn more about all of the exciting events we have planned for the upcoming year.
