Birthday Heroes!

Hi everyone! Hope you’re getting excited, because one week from tomorrow (on Tuesday, November 30th) some of our favorite writers are going to help us celebrate one full year of Quiet Lightning. This is show numb 12, people:

Don’t trust us. SF Weekly says we “combine some of the best literary talent to come out of San Francisco in the past 20 years.”

This is an exciting time for lit lovers to be in the Bay Area. If we were the founders of something relegated to the internet you would see a big banner at the top of this page with our solemn faces looking directly at you and giant tasteful text that reads “An appeal from Quiet Lightning founders Evan Karp and Rajshree Chauhan” and if you clicked on the banner it would take you to a block of text far lengthier than this one appealing to your core beliefs and deep-rooted desires—something to the effect of, if you knew what was good for you, as we do, you would come to this show and both support the things you believe in and satisfy your need for them. So here are the details:
