Introducing: TRANSGRESSION, An Unorthodox Reading Series

Deer Bear Wolf is proud to announce its latest project, TRANSGRESSION: An Unorthodox Reading Series. Transgression is a reading series that seeks to bring the novelty back to the novel crowd – taking its audiences off the beaten path; straying from traditional platforms; and showcasing Atlanta’s most talented writers whilst challenging the perception of the written word.

Transgression is curated by Laura Reylea and John Carroll.

The first edition of Transgression is taking place Thursday, January 22 at the Big House on Ponce. The theme for this first Transgression is CLUE | A LITERARY EVENING OF THE MOST MURDEROUS VEIN. Featured suspects (Readers) will be announced little by little, stayed tuned. The event starts at 8pm. Admission is $10.
