This weekend, Wordplay Festival takes over the Twin Cities with a variety of happenings. One easy entry point into the myriad of events is Saturday’s Lit Crawl, an event filled with beer, books, and games. Highlights include Autoptic’s Spring Showcase at Morrissey’s Irish Pub, where zine and comic creators will share new works; Bryant-Lake Bowl hosting book-themed games, such as Literary Death Match and Nerd Jeopardy; and wild storytelling from Word Sprout at Red Stag. Other venues include Highpoint Center for Printmaking and Zoe’s Cafe.
