Rain Taxi Review of Books is an award-winning quarterly connecting readers to books of merits that might go otherwise overlooked. They cover fiction, poetry, nonfiction, art, graphic novels, translations and more. Rain Taxi exists not just for readers and writers, but also for literary publishers of all shapes and sizes, booksellers, educators, and kindred spirits. They do their best to help keep books flourishing in a distracted society.
Besides their magazine, they also have a publishing arm which produces chapbooks and broadsides and they host a reading series and annual Twin Cities Book Festival. Each year, Rain Taxi also hosts a benefit auction. Their current auction runs through December 16th (only one more day left!). It officially ends at 5 PM CST.
This year’s auction includes first editions by Raymond Carver, Isabel Allende, and Paul Auster; counter-culture tomes; quirky titles from Bette Midler, John Updike, and Sharyn McCrumb; collectible treasures; and much, much more. Swing by their auction page to learn more and don’t forget to drop by their listing at NewPages.
Rain Taxi is also celebrating milestones, i.e. 25 years of publication and 100 issues published!
