Yes; 1417 Main Street, Over-the-Rhine
The Fifth of November,
The Milk Money Release and whatnot,
I can think of no reason,
Why Milk Money's releasing,
Should ever be forgot.”
(an adaptation of a traditional Guy Fawkes Night rhyme)
At 7 p.m. on Friday, November 5, Milk Money, the literary magazine, will be celebrating the staying power of the printed word (sorry, Kindle) with release of Milk Money, Volume Eight: When Jeff Goldblum Speaks, We Listen at Yes (1417 Main Street), OTR’s newest gallery collaborative.
And not only is November 5 special because of this wonderful literary event, but also because it happens to be Guy Fawkes Night (or Bonfire Night)—an evening celebrated by our British brethren to mark the failure of Guy Fawkes’ “Gunpowder Plot” to blow up the Houses of Parliament in London on November 5, 1605.
So what do Guy Fawkes, explosions and Brits have to do with a literary magazine? Not much other than there’s some sort of bonfire/Kindle joke in there and a great reason to have a themed party!
Come to Yes to celebrate Milk Money’s latest collection of experimental works of poetry and fiction from authors—known, new, and sometimes strange—with live readings from local writers, bonfire-style seating, music from DJ Kevin Bayer of You You’re Awesome and a round of British literary karaoke!
British literary karaoke? Yes! If you’re too afraid to get up and read your own written work, bring some of your favorite British classics to read. The MM crew will be providing the basics: Shakespeare, Keats, Russell Brand, etc.
The lovingly printed, collated, folded and stapled Volume Eight will be displayed and sold at a pop-up store inside Yes, along with past MM issues for any linguists and luddites who need to complete their Milk Money collection.
