LitCrawl and LitQuake

Sun, 10/21/2007 - 1:42pm

LitCrawl, on the last night of LitQuake, was a blast. Here's my program, my name in it, and then a piece of the back of the program stuck to a table at what my friend Michael and I lovingly call The Low Bottom Cafe, where we ended up after burgers and ice cream. Notice Michael's John Berryman, which I think he scored that night.

And Mimi Lok then Anne-E Wood waiting to read. Weren't my co-readers stylish? The others were too, but I couldn't get good shots of them.  

 

It's hard to tell just how packed the reading was from this photo, but it'll give you an idea. It sure feels good to see so many people out and about interested in art, writing, and books.

Here's another shot of Adobe that I love:

 

Thanks to everyone who came out to support us. My character Janis talked about eggs in the piece I read and an attendee stopped me afterward, told me she loved my work, said, "You're not going to believe what I'm carrying," and pulled this out of her purse:  

I love San Francisco.
