After reading at the inaugural edition of the new Bay Area Generations reading series last month, curators Charles Kruger and Sandra Wassilie asked me to be the guest curator and host of this month’s reading. I’m thrilled and honored to be helping present some amazing cross-generational pairs of local writers in the gorgeous library at the Berkeley City Club Monday, October 28, 7-9 pm.
The lineup for this month’s reading is:
John Oliver Simon + Alana Cybele Zufolo
Stephen Kopel + John Rowe
Karen Penley + GP Skratz
Maw Shein Win + Matt Cantor
Anne Franken + Martin A. David
Plus a return engagement by musicians Miles Karp + Steven Gray
About Bay Area Generations:
The format of this series, our “gimmick” if you will, is that each “reader” is actually an intergenerational creative couple who perform as a pair. Each show includes three to five pairs of readers and one pair of musicians.
We encourage our contributors to be creative within this format, stipulating only that they propose a combined performance lasting no more than 10 to 15 minutes.
“Generations” includes no introductions or banter, but we do provide a program which provides statements from each pair of readers.
