Press: A Cross Cultural Literary Conference kicked off with an excellent reading last night at The Evergreen State College featuring:
David Michael Wolach
Besides being a total blast from the somewhat recent past for me and somewhat overwhelming in that regard, it was also one of the most engaging readings I've attended in recent memory.
Favorite lines of the night:
"a viagra niagra" - Laura Elrick
"fish soup dissolves the imagination"- Zhang Er
"impressed with his own Catholic posture despite his dormant Judaism"
"friendly fire will love you forever/friendly fire always and forever"-David Michael Wolach
"do squirrels ever say fuckit?"
"global village idiots"
"the revolution will not be re-formatted in the Chicago Manual of Style"- Jules Boykoff
Beyond singular lines, it was an exciting evening full of energy and a sense of play. I'm a fan.

I have to go run off to a panel now but you'll be hearing from me soon! Pictures coming soon as well!
