“The Gamut” – A Litquake Reading!

Elizabeth Block, Katia Noyes, Liz Harvey & Alison Owings join forces in a reading/performance of “unimaginable spaces, far off places, and audience participation interations.”

The Gamut! – a Litquake event

Thursday, October 15th, 7-9pm, Bird & Beckett hosts Elizabeth Block, Katia Noyes, Liz Harvey and Alison Owings in a Litquake reading they’re calling “The Gamut” – promising “a performance of unimaginable spaces, far off places, and audience participation iterations.”

Litquake is simply beyond definition — a quintessential San Francisco phenomenon started in 1999, the same year as Bird & Beckett.

Katia lives in the neighborhood, and Elizabeth probably lives pretty darn close since we see her in here a lot. Come have some fun with four award-winning writers!

Litquake’s all over town, and it’s going to shake up Glen Park for sure!
