From the event page on Facebook:

August is here, and we are taking you back to school. It's time for Trapper Keepers, homeroom, and making out under the bleachers at the first football game. It's time for mean girls, body hair, and sneaking out after curfew. Take an awkward locker room shower in lukewarm nostalgia. It's THE TEEN YEARS!

Remember the best times of your life with our dazzling readers: former Michener and exquisite poet MEG FREITAG; Statesman journalist and dunkmaster extraordinaire ASHER PRICE; nationally-acclaimed playwright and hilarious individual DIANA LYNN SMALL; masterful indie author and fashionable man TIMOTHY WILLIS SANDERS; and Austin's literary altruist and brilliant storyteller STEPHANIE NOLL. 

This month we're also raising funds for an awesome project, Old Books for New Teachers. Entry is free, but we ask that you donate a few bucks or a few gently-used books to help first-year teachers build classroom libraries. (We'll post a list of books they'd love to have in the next few days!) Doors at 7:30, show at 8.

Abandon the problems of adulthood, hide your drinks under the table, and cry all over again about the boys and girls who broke your heart. Come celebrate the magic and glory of THE TEEN YEARS!
