The math might seem unconventional but local writer Mickey Kulp hopes adding books and beer will equal big money that will be used to support co-operative ministry efforts in the Snellville area this weekend.
Kulp and other writers in Snellville are organizing a “Books and Beer” event, which will be held from 7 to 10 p.m., Saturday at Summits Wayside Tavern, which is located at 3334 Stone Mountain Highway in Snellville.
Attendees will get to enter raffle drawings, buy books at discounted prices, meet local writers and listen to writers read some of their work during an open mic session. The raffle is designed to raise money for local cooperative ministry efforts. Books that have been donated by local authors will be the items given away in the raffle.
The authors will also have chances to do book readings at the event between raffle drawings. Kulp did offer a warning for parents in a Facebook event listing for the program though.
“Kids are welcome, but they might hear grownup words and concepts you’ll have to explain later,” he said.
This is the second “Books and Beer” fundraising event that has been held this year. A previous one that was held in June raised $100 for cooperative ministry efforts in south Gwinnett.
