Room magazine is proud to be participating in the annual WORD Vancouver festival this year at Library Square on Sept. 28. This year we’ll be hosting our magazine table where we’ll have the current 37:3 Geek Girls issue and our fabulous back issues. At 12:20 p.m. poets from 37:2 and 37:3 will read their work at our Room reading, and at 4:15 p.m. Roomie Carrie Schmidt will be participating on a lit magazine panel. Hope to see you there!
