book release at the haus of hipstamatic

Join us Monday April 7th at 7pm as we celebrate the publication of our first two Quiet Lightning Books at the gorgeous headquarters of Hipstamatic.

08-hipstamatic-82We asked our authors Zack Haber (if you want to be one of them playing in the streets…) and Tupelo Hassman (Breast Milk) to curate the rest of the evening and they’ve invited Amy Berkowitz, Carrie Hunter, Stephen D. Gutierrez, and Dan Sanders to read… and they all said yes!

We made the books with Tiny Splendor, who will be set up with a print sale. There will be cheap food and free ice cold draft beer courtesy of Lagunitas… which perhaps will inspire you to participate in the livestream of image-based storytelling via Oggl. Wait! There’s more… a special performance by Stella Peach!

  The New ParkwayMay 12 is the premiere of our first short film Combustion at The New Parkway in Oakland! Please send us some work to be a part of that show. Perform at TNP!

Major thanks to the The Leslie Scalapino – O Books Fund for a recent grant that will help make this all possible!

Quiet Lightning is also made possible in part thanks to the Zellerbach Family Foundation, and would absolutely not be so darn great without the help and consistent good work of our board, staff, and volunteers. Our ears and minds are are always open, and so are our meetings — the next one is on April 20th (no joke). Send us a line if you’d like to attend and/or get involved in some way.
