Deepistan National Parklet
937 Valencia St, San Francisco, CA 94110

You've demanded literary excellence, and we resisted.  We pushed back.  "We are not monkeys who dance for your amusement!" we cried.  "We will only return when we have something so extraordinary to say that the moon dips closer to the Earth and the mountains tremble to hear it!"

That time has come.  Litquake 2014.  7:15 - 8:15.  Oh it's on.

Join favorite writers Ben Black, Scott Lambridis, Sara Marinelli, Sommer Schafer, and Benjamin Wachs along with a cast of actors so exciting they are a leading cause of hypertension, as amazing stories are read by incredible performers in an outdoor setting so quirky they could only call it "Deepistan National Parklet."  For real.  It's all for real.  We write fiction, but ony if its made of hard bedrock truth.  Truths that will withstand an earthquake, and outlast the seas.

Those details again:

Action Fiction! (at Litquake)
Saturday, Oct. 18
7:14 - 8:15 pm
Deepistan National Parklet (in front of 937 Valencia)
San Francisco, CA
Truth

This event is free of charge.
We always start on time.

Join us, won't you?  It might not change your life, but your month will be utterly transformed.

Featured writers and performers:
Ben Black, performed by Margarita Galindo
Scott Lambridis, performed by Sara Renauer
Sara Marinelli, performed by Dana Jakobson and Meghan Rutigliano
Sommer Schafer, performed by Sara Judge and Jen Terry
Benjamin Wachs, performed by Gray and Ian Paterson

But why?
Let's admit it: great writers are not always great performers. Great writing should be as passionate and engaging when read publicly as it is on the page. Readings should feel like war and love happening in front of you, not a museum exhibit. The Omnibucket Performance Academy believes that by providing compelling performances of original voices in extraordinary settings will create an aesthetic experience unlike any currently offered in San Francisco.
