Hugo House’s 2015-16 Literary Series presents its second show this Friday, February 12. Bringing in three literary artists and a musician, this year’s Literary Series is tackling a different cliché in each performance. This Friday, the writers will perform pieces based on the truism “what goes around comes around.”
The evening will feature pieces by poet D. A. Powell (Useless Landscape, or A Guide for Boys), novelist Heidi Julavits (The Vanishers, The Folded Clock, co-editor of The Believer magazine), and local poet Sierra Nelson (I Take Back the Sponge Cake). Musician, sound engineer and 2015 Stranger Genius Award Nominee OCNotes (Otis Calvin III) will provide musical interludes between sets.
The Hugo House does fabulous work bringing in some of the most interesting voices in creative writing today. At their last Literary Series, Leslie Jamison took the stage, and their upcoming events include the incredible short story writers Claire Vaye Watkins and Laura van den Berg. This may be one of the last performances at Hugo House before their renovation starts; don’t miss the chance to catch one last spoken word show in the historic space.
