Literary events coming up

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.

Encantada Gallery
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
