Some local love: The Inman Review

By Melanie Yarbrough

Y’all. I love where I live. There is an amazing coffeeshop, bookstore, vintage store, pizza cafe, and bar within a block of me. There are also movie theatres, bakeries, a beautiful library and at least four other squares within a short walking distance. I live in heaven. Or, Inman Square. Another thing I’m grateful for? We’re sort of the land of the quote unquote hipster, but once you get to know these people and this community, you realize how unfair all that talk is, and you can revel in knowing that there are other people who genuinely appreciate warm days, bike rides, old books, good beer, good music, community, and art in all its forms. Tonight, there is a celebration of just that. From an email I received about two seconds ago:

Inman Review Volume 3 is out
Join us at Lorem Ipsum Books tonight for St. Patty’s fun and to celebrate the launch of the latest volume of the Inman Review.
The Inman Review is published by the Cambridge Street Press, a gang of local creatives who are committed to collecting and showcasing the writing, arts, and culture of Inman Square.

Sponsored by Inman-dwellers Pretty Things Beer and the 1369 Coffee Shop, local poets and authors will read from their works, punctuated by acoustic sets by Bell and the Bees, Chris Fullerton, and Girl Bullets. The party will continue afterwards with a DJ set and St. Patty’s treats.

Festivities will begin at 7:30 pm. Copies of the Inman Review will be available for purchase.

So if you’re a local and you love it, I’ll see you there!
