Literary Albuquerque

Here are some sites you might want to check out for upcoming local literary events!

A lot of the monthly tea menus are themed around a person. September's menu focuses on Sherlock Holmes! Additionally, they are having 2 special tea events in September: Airship H.M.S. St. James Flight #274-What if the World were Powered by Steam and the Victorian Age had Not Ended?, which is a tea with a steampunk theme; and Murder and Mayhem at the St. James Mansion, which is a mystery tea. Sounds fun!

Includes their Wordstream Reading Series & a look at their Poets' Plaza.
