Even though it’s Carmaggedon weekend in Los Angeles, a number of CalArts authors are braving the 405-less city to participate in the West Hollywood Book Fair this Sunday.
Among the authors expected at the fair are:
- Doug Kearney, author of The Black Automaton, performs from 12:45-1:45 pm as part of the Red Hen Poetry Hour with Brendan Constantine, Kim Dower and Eloise Klein Healy at the fair’s Poetry Corner.
- Alumna and Black Clock Production Editor Anne-Marie Kinney, whose debut novel, Radio Iris, was well-received by The New York Times earlier this year, participates in the Calling of the Land panel in the Fiction Pavilion from 12:45-1:45 pm with fellow authors Antoine Wilson, Katie Arnoldi, Patrick Brown and Tatjana Soli.
- Martin Plot, author of Indivisible (2011) and a CalArts’ Aesthetics and Politics Program faculty member, discusses the State of the Union from 1-2 pm on the Park Stage, joined by authors Nancy L. Cohen, Robert Scheer, Paddy Hirsch and Mel White.
- Critical Studies faculty member Jen Hofer takes to the Poetry Corner from 1:45-2:30 pm for the Kevin Simmonds & Friends Reading From Collective Brightness: LGBTIQ Poets on Faith, Religion & Spirituality.
There’s free admission and free shuttles between the West Hollywood Library, West Hollywood Park and Plummer Park.
