2017 Indy Literary Pub Crawl

The 2017 pub crawl is SOLD OUT!

Date – Saturday, September 30th

Time – 5:30pm

Location – Fountain Square!

DetailsEarly bird tickets to the crawl are $20, and regular tickets (purchased after Sept 10) will be $25. All will include a signed copy of our author Jon Parrish’s book [email protected]#k! 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: Jon Parrish, author of [email protected]#k, will be at our first stop to talk to us about his work, possibly do a reading, talk about his creative process, and honestly say anything into the microphone that he’d like (we can be pretty loosey-goosey with the rules for our authors, since our group is 21+).

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!

Costume Contest – Dress as your favorite literary character for your chance to win fabulous prizes!
