  • The Believer Presents: R.O. Kwon

    Two years ago, the Beverly Rogers, Carol C. Harter Black Mountain Institute, in association with The Believer magazine, first brought us the exceptional Believer Festival, an annual literature, music and performance event that rewrote this city’s cultural narrative from the bones out. Now, we’re getting a new chapter entirely with The Believer Presents, a monthly event hosted by Writer’s Block Book Shop, featuring both ascendant and established literary talents in conversation with other talented writers, journalists and instructors.

    The premiere event features R.O. Kwon, a National Endowment for the Arts Literature Fellow and contributor to The Guardian, Vice, BuzzFeed and many others. Her debut novel, The Incendiaries, is a story of shattered faith and ill-informed cult violence that writer Laura Miller praised for its “eerie, sombre power” in a laudatory New Yorker review. Kwon will discuss The Incendiaries with Derek Palacio, co-director (with author Claire Vaye Watkins) of the Mojave School, a creative writing workshop for the teenagers of rural Nevada. Together, they’ll unpack Kwon’s story—and continue ours. September 17, 7 p.m., free (RSVP required), events.blackmountaininstitute.org/events/rokwon.  -Geoff Carter

  • Whitney Cummings at Comedy Cellar

    The stand-up comic and sitcom queen (she created CBS’s 2 Broke Girls and produced the Roseanne reboot) just got engaged. If you miss her on her honeymoon tour, she’ll be back November 12 and 13. September 17 & 18, 7 & 9 p.m., $25-$55. –C. Moon Reed
