Check Out Writers With Drinks at The Makeout Room

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Cancel your plans and go to the Makeout Room this Saturday. It’s time for Writers with Drinks.


It’s hard to do better than the write-up they got from, so I’ll just steal it:

Back in 2001, writer Charlie Jane Anders set out to create a new kind of reading that jettisoned the idea of a hushed audience hanging reverentially on each carefully-crafted word, replacing it with a lively cabaret night drawing writers from a smorgasbord of genres — poetry to sci-fi to comedy to kids books.

The SF Chronicle adds:

The result is a blend of high- and lowbrow humor, literature and culture that accomplishes what Anything That Moves and Other Magazine once did: defy categories, bring together communities and expose people to new modes of expression. Much of the series’ success results from the well-connected Anders’ ability to mix literary luminaries and newly discovered talents… Not to be overlooked are Anders’ innovative author introductions, which stitch together current events and self-commentary.

This month readers include:

Jenny Davidson (The Magic Circle, The Explosionist)
