How do you feel about charcoal drawings? Diana Prescott Sandrini has a whole series of them to show off, in her new exhibit at One Twelve Gallery called Love and Ping Ping, which opens tonight from 7-9. I find the pieces delightful in a way that feels simultaneously basic and dynamic - like, I could do that and also There is no way I could do anything like that. I'm assured that, yes, there will be ping pong at the reception.

The Letters Festival was first described to me as Atlanta's "indie" lit festival, which is true in several ways. The new, weekend-long event is the product of the work of a handful of core organizers, including Stephanie Dowda (also of WonderRoot), Scott Daughtridge, and Alex Gallo-Brown (that's them in the photo). Daughtridge told me that he first got the idea from his time organizing a reading series. The Letters Festival is like one of those but longer, with many more authors, including Roxane Gay, Scott McClanahan, and Atlanta's Jericho Brown. Go to their website for a complete schedule and to buy tickets - though several events are free. At The Goat Farm. Learn more here.

Phone Whore, brought to us by the Atlanta Fringe Festival, is kind of probably what you're thinking. Cameryn Moore's one-act is about "no-taboo" sex work by phone, and is subtitled "a play with frequent interruptions." It comes to Georgia to open Atlanta Fringe's Atlanta Fringe Presents! Both nights start at 8; tickets are $15 at the door (if available). Go here to buy them in advance for $12.
