With bargain-basement beer prices ($1 cans of Pabst Blue Ribbon) and all the readers vetted for maximum entertainment value, Cheap Beer & Prose is always a safe bet for a good time. But tonight’s is an especially exciting lineup of fresh new faces in Seattle fiction, including Corinne Manning, Anca Szilágyi, and Kristen Millares Young. And the headliner is someone you’ll be hearing a lot about this year: Nicole Hardy, the local poet whose memoir about Mormonism and sex, Confessions of a Latter-Day Virgin, is bound to make a splash when it’s released in August.
