Switchback Issue 12 Launch Party

Last night's celebration of our latest issue was a total blast. Books and Bookshelves kindly hosted the event and Bear Flag Wine came out to pour for us. Eight writers shared their work from the new issue to a packed house. The line-up was terrific and the energy in the room (which boasted wall to wall, floor to ceiling shelves of poetry) made me feel the excitement of the SF literary community full-force.

Photos (Left to Right):
1) Danny Bracco reads from "Dancing Pink Roses." 2) Candy Shue reads poem "Life in Necropolis: Four Letters." 3) Donna Laemmlen reads "Chimera." 4) Brian Martin reads "Tuesday Anonymous." 5) Alex and Lauren practice being serious. 6) Brigid and me reveling in the literary glory. 7) Chris gets inspired by author photos. 8) Young Elton John x3.  9) Nick savors some Bear Flag merlot. 10) Kate and Libby anticipating some sweet words.

Finally, don't miss this weekend's Small Press Traffic event being held at CCA, "The Encyclopedia Project." More information can be found here.  Poetry + Live Music + Performance Art = Weekend Win.
