Let's Lit Crawl!

If you've never checked out Lit Crawl, it's a really amazing event in San Francisco.  This Saturday night, Mission district bars, galleries, retail stores, laundromats (hell, even the police station this year) will host readings from an avalanche of writers.  I'm reading during Phase 3 at Casa Bonampak on Valencia btw 21st and 22nd streets, but I wanted to outline my rough itinerary for other delicious ones I planned on popping through.

Phase 1 (6:00-7:00): Quiet Lightning at Gestalt, Couterpoint Press at Muddy Waters (featuring Andrew Altschul), Babylon Salon at the Mina Dresden gallery (Peter Orner), and Why There Are Words at Artzone (Tom Barbash and Kate Brady).

Phase 2 (7:15-8:15): Tobias Wolff will be reading at Bruno's and a great bunch of writers, with the hilarious Chelsea Martin, will be at Dog Eared Books for their Salute to Schlock! 

Phase 3 (8:30-9:30): I'll be reading at Casa Bonampak with Grack Krilanovich, Alvin Orloff, Tom Hansen, and a couple other talented heads.  Our friends from the Rumpus have an event at the Latin American Club, featuring one of my all-time faves, Bucky Sinister.  Also, Susan Steinberg reads at the Revolution Cafe.

It's always a lively romp around the neighborhood, so come out and say hi.  Enjoy the literature and more importantly, the company of other people who love literature the same way you do!
