2016 Indy Literary Pub Crawl

Date – Saturday, September 24th

Time – 5:30pm

Location – Mass Ave!

DetailsEarly bird tickets to the crawl are be $25, and regular tickets (purchased after Sept 10) will be $30. All will include a signed copy of our author Sarah Layden’s book Trip Through Your Wires! All proceeds will go to Indy Reads to help promote literacy in central Indiana. Please note that this is a 21+ event, as all of the locations we are stopping at are bars. Though there is no requirement to drink, it is Indiana state law that no one under this age can enter these establishments.

Indiana has a great literary history, and we’re excited to share that with you (as well as a drink or two) and also help out a great organization!

Check out our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter @indylitpubcrawl for ongoing developments in our planning!

Guest Author: Sarah Layden, author of Trip Through Your Wires, will be at our first stop to talk to us about her work, possibly do a reading, and honestly say anything into the microphone that she’d like (we can be pretty loosey-goosey with the rules for our authors, since our group is 21+). We all love Ms. Layden’s work, and are thrilled that she’ll be joining us!

Raffle – There will be a raffle the night of the event with some great prizes from our wonderful sponsors! Please click on their logos on the side of the page to check out their websites!
