The River Styx Reading Series is our main recurring event during the fall, winter, and spring, in which we invite both local and national acclaimed writers to read their work for a St. Louis audience.
The reading series has had several homes over the past four-plus decades. For thirty-seven years the series was known as River Styx at Duff’s, named after its venue, Duff’s restaurant. When Duff’s closed in 2013, the series moved to the Tavern of Fine Arts until it closed in 2016. After two years at Contemporary Art Museum and one at Rooster South Grand, we are now moving to what we expect to be our permanent home: The High Low, a newly constructed literary arts venue from The Kranzberg Foundation, where we will also have office space for magazine endeavors and workshops.
Readings start at 7:00 p.m. on the third Monday of the month.
