Spring break, college basketball, St. Patty’s Day, Mardi Gras....
March is a busy month, but don’t let it keep you from some amazing literary goings-on in the metroplex.
On March 11, The Dallas Museum of Art is hosting B.J. Novak (most notably from the show The Office). He’ll be presenting his topic “Crafting Comedy,” and will also read from his debut short story collection. Did you know he graduated from Harvard? Neither did we. Tickets are $35.

SMU is hosting a LitFest March 18-22. The annual three day event is to be held on the SMU campus, and will include author readings, student conferences and book signings. All events are free and open to the public. Click here for more info.
Wordspace and Poetry Slam is hosting Brando Chemtrails in Dallas on March 21. He has an eclectic resume (Slam Nuba National Championship team member, author, performer). For $5, you can hear his genius in person. Click here for more info.
Finally, the piece de resistance, on March 27th Carve Magazine puts on the Dallas Literary One Night Stand. From 7-9 pm you can mix, mingle, listen to some readings from local literary magazines, and participate in Q&A. Best part – it’s free (excluding the spirits). Click here for more info.
