(NOTE: This event is not at Stories Books. It's at a huge, awesome, historical venue and community center called HM157!)
“No, Lupita! It’s wrong to steal!” Yet steal we shall, from Dickens, and the Sonics, and Clarence Carter. But most of all we’ll be stealing charm and decorations directly from HM157, our favorite Victorian mansion and cultural institution, and the site of our final literary salon of the year!
Come to 3110 N. Broadway on Sunday, Dec. 20, at 2 p.m. and hear stories, songs, and performances (some devoid of ANY holiday connotations, and some with a little nutmeg sprinkled on top) from all the following fantastic little Fezziwigs:
Domenic Priore (Riot on Sunset Strip, Dumb Angel)
Corey Saucier (Lambda Literary)
Nina Tarr (Tenants of the Trees)
Ashaki Jackson, PhD (The Rusty Toque Prize Winner!)
Wyatt Underwood (365.365)
Alexander Weinberg (Love Blind)
… and surprise guests!
With music by Ruthann Friedman.
(Yes, she is the famous folk singer who wrote “Chinatown in the Rain” and “Windy.” And yes, she’s also playing a show at this VERY same venue, the NIGHT BEFORE our own event. But the matinee show is completely different from her evening show—she’s just that good!)
As always, things are hosted by DM Collins and Art Currim.
And as always, this event is FREE and ALL AGES!
Full Bar featuring Mimosas & Irish Coffee*
(But if you do want to bring a little Christmas cheer, bring some donations for HM157 —this fantastic venue was damaged out back by a fire several months ago, and we want to let them know it’s Christmas after all!) There is a wish list of what-nots below.. Things like outdoor folding chairs & durable glassware***
We’ll also be taking donations of canned goods and unwrapped, kid-friendly gifts for families in need this holiday season. But really, your presence is PRESENT enough for us! See you there.
