CANCELLED: Tarot Cards & True Stories

*Due to unexpected water damage over the weekend we are canceling this evening event and issuing refunds to all ticket purchasers. Thank you for your support and understanding. We hope to see you at another Creative Nonfiction event soon.

Join us for a magical night of local diviners and live music—plus small bites, writing inspiration, and a complimentary copy of "Tarot of Transformation."

Admission is $15 at the door, $12 in advance

We'll transform our gallery space and back courtyard into an enchanting, faraway land. Spanish guitar will set the mood, and local diviners will be on hand to give brief tarot readings (a cash tip is recommended if you'd like to have your cards read). We'll read excerpts from "Tarot of Transformation" throughout the evening, and local writer Brittany Hailer will offer guided writing tips in conjunction with your Tarot reading. 

Juju Boutique will be onsite with Tarot cards, crystals, and herbs for purchase. Enjoy light summer refreshments and complimentary beverages throughout the evening. Attendees 21 years of age and older may BYOB.

The joy of [the train] was in riding through open country, the air fresh, or rolling down the tracks at night, the stars overhead like quartz blooming. 

- Sonja Swift, "Tarot of Transformation," True Story, issue #10

Location // 5119 Coral Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15224

Free on-street parking is available in the surrounding residential area and on Penn Avenue after 6:00 pm. The event and gallery space is wheelchair accessible with an electric lift servicing the Coral Street entrance.
