Our friends at the North Mississippi literary zine KITTY SNACKS are throwing a party on Friday, March 5th at Oxford's POWERHOUSE to celebrate the release of their third issue. The thing's limited to 200 numbered copies and boasts writings by George Singleton, Deb Olin Unferth, Kevin Wilson, John Brandon, Mary Miller, Rudy Wilson, and more!

Issue #3 also features photography by Jane Rule Burdine, Ward Long, and John Oliver Hodges, all of whom will have images on display at the throwdown, which ties in to the OXFORD CONFERENCE OF THE BOOK weekend honoring our favorite writer of all time BARRY HANNAH.

John Oliver Hodges will perform a musical interpretation of Hannah's cult classic novella RAY, and the Kitty Snacks dudes will raffle off goodies from FAT POSSUM, THE LYRIC theater, and others. Admission is $5 to drink or $10 if you want a copy of the magazine as well. Festivities begin at 9 p.m.

The fun, flirty, and totally free AFTERPARTY will pop off at Ajax Diner, where guest DJs AIR BUD (a.k.a. Flight + Dent May) will be spinning cosmic disco, funky R&B, rare psych grooves, and more!

For more info hit up the PRESS RELEASE straight from the Kitty's mouth.
