We’re celebrating four years of Quiet Lightning on December 4th by taking Chicken John’s bus into Fairfax to team up with Pints & Prose for the thirteenth and final show in this year’s Tour Through Town.
out of 60 submissions (15%) and combined their work with that of Tuesday Night Writers:
and Cyn Cady
to make a masterful literary mixtape:
sparkle + blink 47.
- Three of the thirteen (23%) have read at QL before:
- Cassandra Dallett (2x)
- Moneta Goldsmith (3x)
- Peter Bullen (3x)
The show is at Peri’s Bar (29 Broadway, Fairfax) and begins at 7:00/7:30pm. If you want to ride from San Francisco in the bus you have to RSVP by sending an email to evan [AT] quietlightning [DOT] org. The first 35 people to RSVP get a guaranteed seat and a complimentary dinner on the way there! Important: to be sure we get to the show on time we need to leave SF at 5:30pm. We will meet on the north side of the Main Library (100 Larkin St.), in the parking lot across from United Nations Plaza; please don’t RSVP if you can’t be there before 5:30pm. We have been raising money to pay Chicken the little he’s asked for his troubles and the cost of dinner; if you can help, that would be amazing.
This is the end of our Tour Through Town. It’s been a magical year—just look at who we’ve collaborated with, where we’ve done shows, who’s read for us—and soon we will open submissions to be a part of our January show, which will be a release party for the winner of our first book contest! Selected by Sarah Ciston and Evan Karp and printed with Tiny Splendor, Quiet Lightning Books is about to have a hot start.
