HUGO LITERARY SERIES:
ALL'S FAIR IN LOVE AND WAR
April 15, 7:30 pm, tickets

Lately, the phrase has been revised: "All's fair in love and war — and an election year." Whether this evening's writers and musician will include this wild election in their pieces remains to be seen, but we're very excited to hear what Andrew Sean Greer, Claire Vaye Watkins, Roberto Ascalon, and DJ Alex Osuch bring to their new work based on the theme given by Hugo House and presented exclusively to the Lit Series audience.

Want to know more about the writers and what they have in store for the evening? Lucky for you, we interviewed (most) of them:

ASK THE ORACLE: BRIAN CASTNER, SARAH GALVIN, SONORA JHA
April 5, 7 pm at Hotel Sorrento, free

Like literary Magic 8-Balls, these three writers will answer the audience's burning questions (written down anonymously at the beginning of the event) with cryptic but telling passages from their books. From serious nonfiction to irreverent, hilarious poetry, the answers will vary wildly. Johnny Horton hosts.
JOIN US! AN EVENING OF COLLABORATIVE NOVELISTS
March 20, 7 pm, free

Writers are solitary creatures. Some days we hardly want to leave the writing room, let alone write with other people! So what's it like to write a collaborative novel?

Join us for a discussion and reading from four collaborative novelists at University Book Store this Sunday.
