Celebrating the work of Joan Didion with readings by: Thomas Ahneesan,Gina Tron,Jill Bergantz,Cara Diaconoff, Robert Lashley & Sarah Galvin
Due to the current surge of Omicron cases, we've shifted our reading back online for Jan and Feb. With the good news of cases dropping in South Africa, we are confident that we'll be back to the live and livestream format again soon, but for now we'll be broadcasting that 3rd Thursday magic from the homeland of the Duwamish, Muckleshoot, and other Coast Salish people straight into your living spaces

On January 20th, we'll kick off the first of these readings with our first ever tribute. We'll be celebrating the recently departed Joan Didion. This reading was sparked by Thomas Ahneesan, who wanted to pay homage to one of her major influences. That spark caught on, and we discovered a number of other writer's influenced by Joan's work who wanted to read particularly influential pieces as well as original essays and poems inspired by or honoring her work, which emphasized people and ideas from the margins of the bureaucratic neoliberal and fascist authoritarianism that has pervaded this colonial enterprise of Amerika. Thomas Ahneesan will be joined by Gina Tron, Jill Bergantz, Cara Diaconoff, Robert Lashley and Sarah Galvin.
