Join fifteen or more local authors as they read their best short short fiction piece (<1000 words) aloud outside the Ney! We also hope to have a couple of non-local nationally-known surprise readers. Mary Helen Specht leads the ceremonies this year, and booths from local publishers will also be present. Food trucks, family-friendly activities, and face-painting too! There will be chairs but also ample space for picnics too. Join us under the Burr Oak for the fun!

Women of Flatbed: A Retrospective
January 17 - April 28, 2019
Opening event: Thursday, January 17, 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Artists' Talk: Saturday, January 26, 2:00 PM
Celebrate selected works by leading female figures of the past and future of Austin's Flatbed Press, now in its 30th year, at "Women Of Flatbed: A Retrospective." Soon after its inception in 1989, co-owner Katherine Brimberry discovered a dearth of women printmakers. Now half of Flatbed's printers are women, enriching both the print-making community and the creative environment for women artists in Austin. A part of PRINT AUSTIN, the exhibition will remain on site through Sunday April 28 2019.
Opening Reception Thursday January 17, 6:30 - 8:30 PM
Artists's Talk Sat January 26, 2:00 - 3:00 PM
Artists in the show will include Alice Leora Briggs, Suzi Davidoff, Sandra C. Fernández, Annalise Natasha Gratovich, Sandria Hu, Sharon Kopriva, Mary McCleary, Melissa Miller, Celia Munoz, Liliana Porter, Linda Ridgway, Julie Speed, Ann Stautberg, Betti Ward, Joan Winter, Sydney Yeager, Judy Youngblood and more.
