UPDATED: VAO Publishing will be officially releasing the second volume of its Along the River anthology series on November 18, 2012. The launch party and award ceremony will take place on that date at the Dustin Michael Sekula Memorial Library in Edinburg. There will be music and art on tap as well as readings by contributors. The ceremony itself will get underway at 2 pm, but we encourage everyone to arrive closer to 1:30 pm to pick up a copy of the book and socialize with the authors. Light refreshments will be provided.
