Get out of the cold and have some fortifying drink and tasty snacks with the staff of ZYZZYVA -- and enjoy a reading from contributors to ZYZZVYA's newest release, the Winter Issue.

Come hear an unusual but warm Christmas tale about furtive sex from Chaney Kwak, poetry from Carolyn Miller, a story about a misguided visit home (via BART, to Richmond) from Brian Boies  and Earl McCartney's story of a young family man adrift in a (chilly) small town.

Hosted by
ZYZZYVA editors Laura Cogan and Oscar Villalon.
