Featured reader Tom Garvey, a former Musehouse student, will read from his book Many Beaucoups Magics. The novel takes place on the Cambodian border in the south-central highlands of Viet Nam in the summer of 1968 and recounts the story of U.S. Army forces and the stone-age tribal people they lead on jungle combat operations.

The event is free and open to the public and will include complimentary refreshments.
