To defeat the scald of Brooklyn summer, Literary Death Match returns to the ever-cool of The Bell House for a night of literature, witticisms, wisecracks, anti-fascism and some general oddballetry to tie it all together in a marvelous can't-miss package. Click for the full lineup or preorder now!
What is Literary Death Match? Part literary event, part comedy show, part game show, Literary Death Match brings together four of today’s finest writers to compete in an edge-of-your-seat read-off critiqued by three celebrity judges, and concluded by a slapstick showdown to decide the ultimate champion.
* Rakesh Satyal, Lambda Award-winning author of Blue Boy and the all-new No One Can Pronounce My Name
* Danielle Henderson, TV Writer (Maniac, Divorce, Difficult People); creator of Feminist Ryan Gosling
* Jamie Brickhouse, three-time MOTH Slam Champ, author of Dangerous When Wet: A Memoir of Booze Sex and My Mother
* Lauren Duca, Shorty Award-winning journalist, columnist for Teen Vogue (including Donald Trump is Gaslighting America)
Hosted by LDM creator Adrian Todd Zuniga.
Daniel's band Ghost Star gigs regularly around New York and he facilitates workshops on storytelling from an anti-oppressive power analysis. You can find his thoughts on writing, read dispatches from his decade-long career as an NYC paramedic and hear his music atghoststar.net/ and @djolder on twitter.
