About the Event.
Anti-Heroin Chic is a haven for poetry, short fiction and visual art by unheard voices, and we are proud to host the launch for their inaugural print anthology, What Keeps Us Here: Songs From The Other Side of Trauma. In addition, Brian Jabas Smith will be reading from Tucson Salvage: Tales And Recollections From La Frontera, a collection of literary essays from the Tucson Weekly whose tales of marginal lives and addiction are deeply humane, inspiring, and simpatico with the AHC mission. There will also be a very special film screening of Maggie Smith’s Tucson Salvage: The Documentary.
