MAKE Issue 10 Release Party

Dec. 22 MAKE Issue 10 Release Party Jake’s Cigars and Spirits, 6206 Maple St. 7-9 p.m., reading at 7:45 p.m. $5 suggested donation, makemag.com Don’t worry, Omaha can take some credit for MAKE: A Chicago Literary Magazine, a nonprofit publication featuring fiction, nonfiction, poetry and art telling the story of our times. Five years ago, co-founder and Omaha native Sarah Dodson instigated this impressive phenomena showcasing established and emerging talent from around the globe, integrating arts events to educate on literature as well. Celebrating the 10th Issue, “At Play,” which highlights work about youth, sports, performance and sex, five creative minds will read for a real-live look-and-listen at the talent that makes MAKE in all forms. Nebraska-born author Scott Allison will read an original piece, as will award-winning Nebraska poet Steve Langan. Associate MAKE editor and Duchesne writing teacher Kate Sommer will read from a story in Issue 10. Daniel Wuebben comes from NYC, a scientific mind as well as literary, reading from his PhD dissertation on power lines and the mind. Award winning author Timothy Schaffert, founder/director of the (downtown) Omaha Lit Fest, a partner with MAKE events in the past, might just write and read something inspired by the very evening. Issue 10 will also be on hand for discounted purchase. Complimentary buckets of Lucky Bucket beer and snacks while they last.
