Get Lit! is pleased to announce the 4th annual Pie & Whiskey reading.

Hosted by Sam Ligon, fiction writer, editor of Willow Springs, and associate professor of creative writing at Eastern Washington University, along with Kate Lebo, author of Pie School: Lessons in Fruit, Flour, and Butter, the event features thirteen authors reading flash fiction, flash nonfiction, and poetry inspired by the following quotes about everyone’s favorite food and drink:

“Pie is the food of the heroic. No pie-eating people can ever be permanently vanquished.”

 --New York Times, May 3, 1902

“Always carry a flagon of whiskey in case of snakebite and furthermore always carry a small snake.”

--WC Fields

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 twelve pieces written for Pie & Whiskey, with the books hand-stitched by EWU students. The chapbook will be for sale at the event.

The 2015 Pie & Whiskey readers include:

Sam Ligon, Kate Lebo, Jess Walter, Thom Caraway, Rachel Toor, Renee D'Aoust, Gary Copeland Lilley, Benjamin Percy, Jordan Hartt, Jessica Lohafer, Tim Greenup, Kristen Young, Don Poffenroth
