Get Lit: Me, Myself, and I

Tell your own story as we explore the self through memoirs! Learn about some of your favorite authors through memoir-themed trivia, create your own book cover, and even get your author headshot taken. Plus, spice up your night with beer, wine, and our signature cocktail The Memoir-tini. Your story matters, and at Get Lit: Me, Myself, and I you’ll have the chance to celebrate it!
