Intersection's series focusing on local independent publishing houses provides a unique opportunity to meet some of our leading local writers, publishers, and performers and learn first-hand what drives the Bay Area's local independent publishing community.
ColorLines Magazine (est. 1998) is the first national, multi-racial magazine devoted to covering the politics and creations of communities of color, and features Tram Nguyen, who reads from her book We Are All Suspects Now: Untold Stories from Immigrant America After 9/11. Bay Area stage performers Melyssa Jo Kelly, Anna Maria Luera and Danny Wolohan read from Good for the 'Hood? by Anmol Chaddha, an article about Wal-Mart's push for expansion into poor and urban communities, published in ColorLines Magazine's Summer 2005 issue.
LiP Magazine (est. 1996) gives voice to those working for a sustainable society rooted in cooperation and diversity, and features Brian Awehali, who reads from Opt Out by Dave Barringer.
