To support and celebrate writers, the Saint Paul Almanac sponsors the Lowertown Reading Jam Series at the Black Dog Coffee and Wine Bar in Lowertown. Each reading is curated by a different professional or emerging writer who invites other writers, established and emerging, to join them for a performance centered around a theme of the curator’s choosing. We intentionally expand the experience with a visual artist rendering the event on paper. 

The Lowertown Reading Jams celebrate the rich literary history of Minnesota’s capital city. Events take place at the Black Dog Café, 308 Prince Street, 7-8:30 p.m., each with a featured curator. All ages are welcome, and there is no cover charge. The series is filmed by SPNN. Browse video here.
