I will have a flash fiction piece performed in a program of material curated by Play On Words, as part of the 2019 Lit Crawl in San Francisco. One of the most anticipated literary nights of the year, Lit Crawl is a massive, one-night literary pub crawl throughout the city’s Mission District, bringing together 500+ authors and close to 10,000 fans for the world’s largest free pop-up literary event. Started in 2004, Lit Crawl cultivates a unique, resonant brand: smart and silly, worldly and wacky events presented in venues usual (bars, cafes, galleries, and bookstores) and unusual (police stations, tattoo parlors, barbershops, and laundromats).
On Monday September 9th, I will be one of the featured poets at the San Jose Poetry Festival, which unfolds this year in downtown San Jose, extending to five days! I will be appearing with Connie Post (Poet Laureate Emerita of Livermore and winner of the 2014 Lyrebird Award from Glass Lyre Press for her book Floodwater) and the performance duo of Mark Heinlein and Myles Forman who performed at Rio Theatre as part of TEDx Santa Cruz in 2015 and performed at the 2017 Cinequest Film Festival. Should be a fantastic lineup. More info will eventually be posted here:

Gary will also be signing books at the event. Come on down for some art, some conversation and maybe even a few surprises. For more info, go here.
