Book Release Party
September 10, 2015
The Saint Paul Almanac will celebrate its first decade of annual publications in its yearly book release party on Thursday, September 10, at the Black Dog Coffee and Wine Bar and AZ Gallery starting at 7 p.m. The new edition, Saint Paul Almanac: A Ten-Year Retrospective, celebrates the previous nine issues of the yearly book using selected pieces that highlight the flavor of the Almanac and the flavor of Saint Paul.
As they do each second Thursday in September, Almanac lovers will pack the Black Dog and the adjacent AZ Gallery for the Almanac publication party. This year’s bash will feature background beats provided by one of the Twin Cities’ best DJs, Kool AKiEM and readings from Almanac authors Donte Collins, Maivboon Vang, Sharon Day, Patsy Kahmann, Tim Nolan and Wendy Brown-Báez.
The night’s emcee will be writer, playwright, teacher and performer Saymoukda Duangphouxay Vongsay. The Medicinal Jazz Band will provide musical entertainment at the Black Dog Cafe, and the jazz ensemble of Nathan Hanson, Davu Seru and Doan Brian Roessler will play at AZ Gallery.
The event will also include a silent auction, the ever-popular Storymobile and, as always, CAKE!
An exhibit of art from local artists featured in the 2016 Almanac will be on display at AZ Gallery and the Black Dog Café from September 3 through September 27.
