NEWS: AWC Centennial Celebration

April 19, 2014 -- 6:00 to 9:00 PM

Atlanta Contemporary Arts Center
535 Means Street N.W.
Atlanta, GA 30318

Please come and celebrate our 100th birthday with special guest speaker, bestselling memoirist and novelist, Augusten Burroughs, acclaimed author of Running with Scissors, Dry and more.

"Unflinchingly, Augusten Burroughs gouges himself (literally and figuratively), bleeds, gets it on paper--often without a neat resolution or the genre's obligatory epiphany--and then makes you laugh. Now that's genius." --The New York Times Book Review

"One of the most compelling and screamingly funny voices of the new century belongs to Augusten Burroughs....[He] is blessed with an offbeat perspective and a viciously uncensored wit...." --USA Today

Join us for an evening of heavy hors d'oeuvres, wine, beer and soft drinks, with music, memories and an extraordinary guest speaker.

You also will get to socialize with numerous local authors and friends of the AWC, including Bobbie Christmas, Hollis Gillespie, Lauretta Hannon, Terra Elan McVoy, Nicki Salcedo, Jedwin Smith, Daren Wang, Philip Rafshoon, Georgia Lee, Bill Covington, Anna Schachner and others!
