Thursday: Some of Chicagoists' very finest will be reading their dystopian and end-of-the-world-themed work at "The Liquid Burning of Apocalyptic Bard Letters." Chicago writers Jeff Phillips, Ian Randall and Daniel Mac Rae will join Chicagoist politicos Aaron Cynic and Kevin Robison to talk, read and toast all things apocalyptic. We encouraged Kevin to read his celebrated Wal-Mart piece, but he is opting to read a short story instead.
Matilda Baby Atlas, 3103 N. Sheffield Ave., 9 p.m., free
Thursday: The Literary Writers Network will celebrate the release of its inaugural 2009 "Best Of" Print Edition. All stories were originally published on the 10,000 Tons of Black Ink site, an online medium that publishes work by artists new to the literary scene. The night will include author readings and a silent auction and raffle, with prizes such as Chicago Fire tickets and Bucktown Soup Café credit. Yummy.
The Book Cellar, 4736 N. Lincoln Ave., 7 p.m., $5 donation includes copy of publication
