We're super excited to invite you to the release of the Quarterly vol. 27 during another Lit Crawl on Valencia St. This year, we're kicking off the celebration with poet (and former 826 Programs Director) Vickie Vértiz, who will be presenting her award-winning new poetry collection, Palm Frond with Its Throat Cut.

The evening will continue with students reading their pieces and sharing their beautiful stories with us. And as always, light snacks and refreshments will be provided.

Admission is free, and all are welcome. Bring your friends and family, and let's raise a glass—of milk—to our students' amazing work! You can find more info on Lit Crawl here.
