Some things are easy to say goodbye to. New Year’s resolutions, for instance. Winter. Rick Perry. Other things are difficult. Jon Stewart, afternoon beers at the Dog and Duck, the next morning’s hangover. And then there are some things you just cannot kill at all. Like the peskiest cockroach or Matthew McConaughey’s acting career, Five Things has emerged alive and triumphant from the backroom. It has withstood the slow march of time. We’re back! Join us at Cheer Ups on Wednesday, February 25 to celebrate COMEBACKS of all sorts. We’ll be waiting for you with hugs, drinks, and five funny and talented readers: Michener superstars Kelly Luce and Tyler Gobble, Five Things’ best friend Mike Graupmann, A Strange Object codirector Callie Collins, and American Short Fiction editor Adeena Reitberger. Brittany Callender and Lesley Clayton emcee and launch the newest iteration of the reading series we all know so well. There are too many goodbyes in the world, y’all. Let’s say hello instead. See you there.
