Literary Death Match – Tuesday, October 16th
Tomorrow night, October 16th, 95 Empire hosts the PROVIDENCE PREMIER of Literary Death Match!
Rhode Island, here we come! An event nearly seven years in the make, Literary Death Match descends on The Creative Capital (and more specifically AS220) to make Providence our 46th city with a whimsy-filled night of literature, libation and laughs. Not to be missed!
The night’s brilliant foursome of authors — who will read their own work for seven minutes or less — includes Performance Thanatology founding director Ric Royer (author of Anthesteria), Big Other managing editor John Madera, Poets Out Loud prize winner Darcie Dennigan (author of Madame X (2012) and Corinna A-Maying the Apocalypse (2008) and poetess Mairéad Byrne (author of Lucky and The Best of (What’s Left of) Heaven)!
They’ll do their best before a trio of all-star arbiters, including the fantastic screenwriter Joe Birbiglia (Sleepwalk with Me), Boston-based stand-up comedian Gary Petersen, and poet Gillian Kiley (author of Keyhole 6)!
Hosted by LDM creator Adrian Todd Zuniga. Produced by Kirsten Sims.
