Support Black Warrior Review!

Oct 21, 2013Archive, News

Black Warrior Review is celebrating our 40th anniversary by inviting you to join us for CATSBY!, our 2013 Auction, to be held November 6th at 7:30pm in the Martini Room of Glory Bound Gyro Co. (2325 University Blvd  Tuscaloosa, AL 35401).

The night will include a grand compendium of bearcats, bee’s knees, Jay Gatsby himself, and cat-and Gatsby-themed drinks! Bring a costume, bring your dancing shoes, your wallet, that betting spirit that plunged you into the depths of the Depression, bring a single, a green light, and your favorite guy or gal!

The auction will feature gifts from local businesses, as well as art pieces by students and faculty at the University of Alabama. All proceeds will go directly to Black Warrior Review to support the award winning publication as well as our Bankhead Reading Series.

The silent auction will open at 7:30pm and the live auction will begin shortly after at 8:00pm. Be there or be square!
