June Final Friday: Nevermind the Weather

Please join us to welcome visiting artist Jason Kenning at the opening of "Nevermind the Weather", this Friday, June 26 from 5-9 pm.
How does being more connected digitally translate into our physical lives? Does it benefit or harm the environment? How do seemingly insurmountable issues like climate change affect our decisions as individuals and society as a whole? Does technology alienate us, or redefine who we are and what we become?

“Nevermind the Weather” is an exhibition of paintings and sculpture that illustrate the ecology of our digital lives. This series takes inspiration from the way our culture consumes technology just as the environment is consumed by it.

An Evening of Fiction, Poetry, and Music with Ryan Werner, Michael Lambert, and Carey Scott

Tuesday, July 1st at 6:00 PM
Lawrence Percolator
913 Rhode Island St.

Ryan Werner and Michael Lambert are two Midwestern writers on a rock & roll style tour around the country. Carey Scott is a one-man machine gun with bullets made of love.

Let's read books and have a good time.


Ryan Werner is the author of the short short story collection Shake Away These Constant Days (Jersey Devil Press, 2012) and the story cycle Murmuration (Passenger Side Books, 2013). Of his work, Mary Miller (author of Big World and The Last Days of California) said, "Ryan writes with authority, skill, and passion, not only about the Midwest, but about youth and what it means to be young." His newest chapbook of short fiction is titled If There's Any Truth In a Northbound Train. His work has appeared in or is forthcoming in the Indiana Review, The Rumpus, Smokelong Quarterly, [PANK], BULL: Men's Fiction, Juked, and many other places of varying notoriety and popularity.


Michael Lambert lives and works in Wisconsin. In 2012 his work received the Thomas Hickey Creative Writing Award from the University of Wisconsin—Platteville and was nominated for the Carson Prize. Recent works have appeared in Driftless Review, Midwestern Gothic, and Mixed Fruit, among others. His first collection, Circumnavigation, (Red Bird Chapbooks, 2014), is dedicated to self-propelled travel in North America.


Carey Scott started from the bottom of the campfire. Now he's here.
