Like that fictional city of Tipping in China, Orlando isn’t just a city in the navel of Florida. It’s a weedy British movie star, a Chevy SUV sold only outside the U.S., a Sally Potter movie starring Tilda Swinton. Also, according to local literary imprint Burrow Press, it’s “a power plant in Johannesburg, an epic poem, a celebrity mask used as a marital aid.” In their latest city-focused anthology, Other Orlandos, Orlando is anything but our little theme park-adjacent town as writers springboard off the city, mind-bending it into “new contexts and connotations.” The book release party is being held at the Brewstillery, the beer and liquor operation that also hosts the Bear & Peacock Taproom in Winter Park. In the spirit of the book, we hope to see a bear and a peacock at the party.

3 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 13 | The Brewstillery, 1288 N. Orange Ave., Winter Park | burrowpress.com | free
