Living Room, Tuesday, November 16 @ 7P

Meredith A. Nelson hosts and reads Eileen Myles, Frank O’Hara and other queer poets in response to the recent suicides of Gay teens who have been bullied. Everyone is welcome to read their own work, or come just to listen.

Also, the Wily Almondina does the first SPLAB raffle at the end of the session, so come to put in yr fin and see who wins.

Living Room happens every Tuesday starting at 7 in the new SPLAB in the old Columbia School. Enter from Edmunds, just west of Rainier, three blocks east of the Columbia City Link Light Rail station.
