Pie & Whiskey Reading

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Get Lit! presents the 5th annual Pie & Whiskey Reading, hosted by writers Samuel Ligon and Kate Lebo, featuring readings of flash fiction, flash nonfiction, and poetry inspired by everyone's favorite food and drink.

Pies served at the event will be baked by Kate Lebo, with help from other heroic pie bakers of Spokane. Lost Horse Press will produce a chapbook featuring the pieces written for Pie & Whiskey, with cover design by Spokane artist Chris Bovey, and the books are hand-stitched by EWU students. A limited number of the chapbooks will be available, and sales of the book help support the event. Donations are also gladly accepted. Whiskey generously donated by Spokane's delicious and award-winning Dry Fly Distilling.

Samuel Ligon is the author of the novel Among the Dead and Dreaming (2016) and a new book of short stories, Wonderland (2016), in addition to two previous books of fiction. Kate Lebo is the author of Pie School: Lessons in Fruit, Flour, and Butter.
