Tonight I’m going to the Marsh Theater to Lynnee Breedlove’s “One Freak Show”. Come and join me! Maybe dinner or drinks afterward?
On Saturday, for Litcrawl, I’m going to:
PHASE I, 6–7 p.m.
Dalva (21 and over)
3121 16th Street
Poetry Mission: Spoken Word Poets Take the Stage
Lineup includes: Rupert Estanislao, Leticia Hernández-Linares, Ise Lyfe, Phillip T. Nails, Dan O., Aimee Suzara, and Kirya Traber. Emcee: Elz Cuya.
Sounds fabulous, I like Leticia’s work a lot, don’t know the others, so the draw for me is getting to hear work I won’t otherwise hear.
Abandoned Planet Bookstore
518 Valencia Street
One World, Many Languages: Literature in Translation
Lineup includes: Chana Bloch, Hamida Banu Chopra, Zack Rogow, John Oliver Simon, and Niloufar Talebi.
I love all these translators, but actually, will see most of them next week at the American Literary Translators conference in Seattle! So that might mean I skip the event where all my homies will be.
No question here, I’m going to this. Genderqueer is at the same time and I want to support that event but I already know most of those people and their work and hear them at queer readings.
908 Valencia Street
Flor Y Canto: Chicano/Latino Writers in English
Lineup includes: Ruben A. Barron, Ananda Esteva, Melissa Lozano, Alejandro Murguia, Milta Ortiz, and Luis Alberto Urrea.
PHASE III, 8:30–9:30 p.m.
No question here, either. The Casa del Libro event looks good too but I am a huge fan of WWD.
Latin American Club (21 and over)
3286 22nd Street
Getting Boozy: Writers With Drinks and Manic D Press
Writers With Drinks: Claire Light, Lauren Wheeler, and Alvin Orloff. Emcee: Charlie Anders. Manic D Press: Jennifer Blowdryer, Justin Chin, and Jon Longhi. Emcee: Jennifer Joseph
