Tonight’s readings explore the fluidity of identity from Asian-American perspectives, drawing upon roots as diverse as Iran and Taiwan. The San Francisco Lit Crawl consists of dozens of literary events that occur on the same night in the Mission district. It's like a pub crawl, but instead, has hundreds of people who are part of Litquake going from reading to reading.
A Pochino Press event will occur at Noisebridge during phase 2 of the Crawl, which is between 7.15 and 8.15 pm on October 17. Pochino Press offers a multi-media stage for change makers and culture creators.
The readers for this event will be:
