Trilogy Wine Bar and Lounge, a Boulder institution for eight years, changed ownership a couple of months ago, became the b.side lounge and underwent a renovation. So its appropriate that Fast Forward Press, known for its literary renovations, will release its annual collection of flash or very short fiction there tonight.
Both offer great value, too: the b.side with its $5.75 bottomless glass of wine and $3 to $8 small plates, and Fast Forward, which is presenting twenty stories from both local and national, first-time and returning authors.
The scope of the project nearly 150 works were submitted from all over the country only adds to the evenings appeal; appearances by author Bobbie Louise Hawkins from Naropa University and nationally known flash-fiction author Linh Dinh are a bonus. Hawkins has become known for her flash essays, included in her book My Own Alphabet, which set each letter of the alphabet to a Hawkins original.
I think its going to be a really good party and celebration of flash fiction for everyone, says Leah Rogin-Roper, founder of Fast Forward.
The free event starts at 5:30 p.m. and continues until about 7:30, with live music to follow in the lounges back room. The b.side is at 2017 13th Street in Boulder; for more information, visit http://fastforwardpress.wordpress.com or call 303-744-7314.
Fri., June 27, 5:30-7:30 p.m., 2008
