Vanessa Blakeslee & Dave Reidy

Join us for an evening of independent fiction, with three authors from indie publisher Curbside Splendor! Curbside Splendor was conceived as a punk rock band in the early 1990s in an apartment in Urbana, Illinois. The band never really went anywhere, but Curbside was re-founded as an independent press in the fall of 2009. They publish fiction, creative non-fiction, and poetry that celebrates art, urban life, and extraordinary voices.
