If you fancy locally crafted reading material, or you're scrambling to find a gift for your literary-minded buddy and can't stomach fighting your way inside a bookstore this time of year, fret not. The Cabin has a solution.
The organization has put together an anthology of up-and-coming Idaho writers, and in true literary fashion, it's hosting a party to launch the book.
Join Boise author Alan Heathcock and musician James Orr at the Linen Building, Wednesday, Dec. 5, to celebrate the release and get a chance to score a copy of the new book.
Rooms: Writers in the Attic is the first installment of a new annual anthology published by The Cabin. The 148-page paperback features 29 writers chosen by Cort Conley, director of literary services at the Idaho Commission on the Arts, some of them published for the first time in Rooms.
Each writer was tasked with writing about rooms in some form or another. Accepted submissions were organized into five categories, refuge, shelter, territory, space and reliquary, and the result is a pocket-sized paperback, or an even more portable e-book for use on your digital reader of choice.
A $5 entry fee at the event benefits The Cabin, with beer, wine and Pie Hole pizza available for purchase. Heathcock, author of Volt, emcees the event while Orr provides music. Copies of Rooms are available for $12.99 and with its authors on hand, you can snag an autograph in the pages of your book.
