Beyond Baroque was a literary staple of my years living in Venice Beach. I’m honored to return there on Saturday, December 8th to help them celebrate their 50th anniversary.

From Beyond Baroque’s website:

Each installment of the NEW Series features original work commissioned from authors on a single theme.

The changes Beyond Baroque has undergone over a half-century have brought us to reflect on our past and our present. That's why we chose  Innocence and Experience  as the theme for the final installment of the NEW Series. Join us as acclaimed writers Harryette Mullen and J. Ryan Stradal read wholly original work that has never been published or presented elsewhere. Other guests to be announced soon!

This program is supported in part by a grant from the National Endowment of the Arts.
