Since its inception, Eastern Washington University's annual literary celebration, the tongue-in-cheek-titled Get Lit! has offered area lit lovers access to a range of writing talent. Today, from 5-7 p.m. at the Red Lion Inn at the Park, the festival — which officially runs from April 7-13 — offers a preview of things to come that boasts a local flavor. It's called the Get Lit! EWU Alumni Reading.
EWU alumni such as Asa Marie Bradley, Aimee R. Cervenka, Scott Eubanks, Liz Rognes and Spokesman-Review columnist Shawn Vestal (author of the story collection "Godforsaken Idaho"), will both read from their respective works and talk about their lives as writers.
Tickets are $10 at the door and include hors d'oeuvres and, most important, a drink ticket.
