On Monday, August 1 Quiet Lightning and The Conservatory of Flowers present: The Greenhouse Effect, a summer reading series to be held inside the state’s first greenhouse. This marks the first series for Quiet Lightning and the first for The Conservatory, which was founded in 1878 and is a national historic landmark (not to mention the most beautiful building in San Francisco). The second show, which will include a
picnic litnic on the front lawn, will take place on Labor Day (Sept 5), and the final show will be Oct 10 as part of Litquake.
We are thrilled to announce our readers for the first installment of the show, which features art by Tyler Iorillo and will begin promptly at 7:30pm. We do ask you to arrive at 7, though, to make sure you get all of the handouts (there will be several for this series, and they’re not all paper).
It’s hot and humid in the conservatory; dress for the occasion! Bring a bag and a change of clothes, if you like. We think it’d be cool if everyone wears white! But you don’t have to.
We are suggesting a $5 donation, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Also, no one will be penalized for donating extra.
