We’re joking about the couch, but… wow. We are beyond thrilled to be raffling this gorgeous original oil, painted for us by acclaimed artist Christopher Leeper. We will split the proceeds with Chris, allowing us to support one of our favorite artists, as well as fund our own programming and development.
The raffle kick-off is Sat. at the Artists of the Mahoning Commons spring sale. The winning ticket will be drawn at the Summer Festival of the Arts July 10. Tickets cost $3.00 or two for $5.00. We will have tickets at our May, June and July readings at Suzie’s Dogs & Drafts, as well.
Please help us spread the word! If you’d like to buy tickets but can’t make our events, let us know at LitYoungstown@gmail.com.
We will be in the loading dock at the historic Ward Bakery on Mahoning Ave. from noon to 5:00 Saturday (across from the UHaul), along with Flutterby Books, the Cranky Pressman, and Extending Grace.
We are pleased to present an afternoon of incredible poetry and music.
