On Tuesday, March 19, 7 to 9pm, Feast of Words: A Literary Potluck teams up with San Francisco submission-based reading series Quiet Lightning to feature a literary mixtape of local writers. In signature Quiet Lightning style, the readings will be delivered in rapid succession and printed in the 37th issue of “sparkle + blink,” a Quiet Lightning chapbook sold at the event for $10. A free ebook download of “sparkle + blink” and video documentation of the readings will be accessible following the event at http://www.quietlightning.org
Culinary guest Maggie Weber-Striplin of Pachamama Cookery anchors the evening’s potluck with a savory hot dish inspired by the theme “Quiet Lightning.” As always, guests can bring a dish, take part in a writing exercise and share the work they have created for a chance to win literary and culinary prizes.
