• Brian Allen Carr in Da (Open) House

    Posted Posted by David Duhr in WBN News & Events     Comments No comments

    We’re very pleased to announce that Brian Allen Carr will be our guest for open hours this coming Saturday (the 24th). As most of you know, Brian recently bagged top prize in the Texas Observer‘s first annual short story contest; his story “The First Henley” was chosen as the winning entry by the legendary Texas writer Larry McMurtry (Lonesome Dove, Terms of Endearment, The Last Picture Show).

    Anywho, Brian will be at WriteByNight from 10-4 signing copies of his new story collection Short Bus (2011, Texas Review Press). He’s a really cool cat, and will basically be hanging around here chatting it up with any of you who want to come in and chat it up with an up-and-coming fiction writer. (And editor: Brian is assistant editor at Boulevard and editor of Dark Sky Press.)

    As always, we’ll have plenty of drinks and goodies for all comers. And for those of you looking to avoid the clamor, our second level will be open all day.

    Short Bus is an excellent collection. For those of you who don’t believe everything I say, here’s some proof:

    Slug Trail

    Whisper to Scar

    Not Hearing the Jingle

    My Second Throat

    Running the Drain

    (All stories appear in Short Bus)

    Brian is also a native Austinite, for you lovers of all things local.

    And if any of you are looking for something cool to do on Wednesday night, he’s part of the Five Things lineup (7:30 at the 29th Street Ballroom at SpiderHouse). We’ll be there. And we’ll be square.

    So come hang out with us. Guaranteed fun or your money back.
