Megan Edwards: Literary Las Vegas

September 11 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

Las Vegas locals know that “literary Las Vegas” sounds oxymoronic to the rest of the world. Outsiders are convinced that the only books to be found in Sin City are sports books, and literacy is not a requirement for excelling at blackjack, playing the slots, or even holding down a job – because everybody in Vegas is a dealer, a showgirl, or a monosyllabic gangster.

Discussion follows – be ready to share your thoughts and observations. (Read the full post here)
