Did you know our glorious 50th issue is due August 29th? That's right, FIFTY! We've pulled all the stops for this one, including can’t-miss new work from writers who we’ve long published — Jonathan Lethem, Lydia Davis, Sherman Alexie, Etgar Keret, Sheila Heti, Diane Williams, Sarah Vowell, John Hodgman, Steven Millhauser (among many others) — and fantastic new writing from authors who we’ve long admired, including Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Thomas McGuane, Kevin Young, and Carrie Brownstein. The book itself will be hardback with a dust jacket that folds into two different covers, and folds entirely open to a poster by Tucker Nichols. Choose whatever cover fits your mood, or tack it to the wall and reveal the gem hidden underneath. OKAY, we’ve said enough, now to why we're really here…
WE'RE HAVING A PARTY! All this hard work was really an excuse to hangout with our incredible supporters and readers.
We're honored and teary-eyed to be celebrating this jubilee 50th issue at one of our favorite local bookstores, Green Apple Books on the Park. We really hope that you can join us.
— PARTY DETAILS: It's a party! There will be drinks (by Fort Point Beer Company) and mingling and happy moments to share. If we figure out the sound system, there may even be music. (Group meditation is cool, though, right?)
— A note from the McSwys Staff:
We truly couldn’t conceive of how, without your readership and support, any of this would be possible. You’re the best readers, supporters, subscribers, and drinking buddies a publication could ever ask for. We hope you’ll consider joining us on this late summer Tuesday afternoon and have one on us, as we relish in the joys of independent publishing.
And a special thank you to Fort Point Beer Company for sponsoring us.
Pre-order the issue!
