High Voltage, a FREE Reading by Electric Literature

Come to Franklin Park this Monday at 8pm for High Voltage, a FREE reading put on by Electric Literature.  If this is the first you’re hearing of Electric Literature, here’s their beautifully simple mission statement:

Electric Literature’s mission is to use new media and innovative distribution to return the short story to a place of prominence in popular culture.

High Voltage is a monthly installation that includes readings from the magazine’s contributing authors, screenings of animated shorts and dancing (playlist put together by contributing authors).  Their mission is a welcomed challenge now that CNN has conditioned our minds to three sentences summaries.  And now we have GIF porn!  GIF porn.  Why would anyone read?

High Voltage

About the author

David Torrone - The Happy Peasant

Dave escaped the depression-ridden state of Michigan for the greener pastures of Brooklyn in the winter of 2010. He soon found that these greener pastures included: sharing an “intimate” subterraneous apartment with three Texans and initially committing to vegetarianism because meat was “out of his tax bracket.” Dave studied creative writing and behaviorism at The University of Michigan and currently works in a research laboratory at Columbia University. Dave is a struggling playwright, an overly enthusiastic dancer and probably that guy at your otherwise cool party talking about how little he paid for his beer.
