Celebration and reading for CCSF’s literary & arts journal, Forum.
The folks who pour their hearts, souls, art and toil into producing a literary journal out of City College of San Francisco twice each year, with fall and spring issues, invite you to listen to some of the work and party with them. It’s certainly a fundraiser, so if you can spare twenty or two hundred, then cut it loose and plump up their skinny budget! If it doesn’t hurt you much or at all, then why not? It’ll certainly help them, and we need their creativity, their positivity, their activism and their soulfulness.
CCSF is one of the world’s great institutions, cultivating the minds and talents of San Francisco natives and transplants alike for many decades. Their teaching staff is extraordinary. And the students who flow through, all ages, all races, all genders, all neurologies, all ilks, are a gift to the world. Prop ’em up and show ’em your love. That can’t hurt. In fact, it’ll make you feel good. And it’ll make a difference.
If nothing else, come to applaud and nibble some free cheese.
We love ’em madly, and we love you, too! Glad to be with you on this highway to hell. It’s got some thrilling curves along the way, so we might as well enjoy ’em!
"It is in doubt and not in faith that the salvation of the world is to be found. Faith is a delusion and a snare: a pitfall, a prison. It intimidates the intellect. With fear of eternal damnation religion crushes intellectual activity; with hero worship it destroys individuality; with hopes for the beyond it prevents the growth of ideals for the present. It makes of us a race of intellectual cowards; it changes but little if any our daily conduct toward each other. But doubt sets us free."
-- Job Harriman, 1902
