kgb bar fantastic fiction reading 1-20-10








Last Wednesday writer/actor Chris Braak and I took the Chinatown bus from Philly to attend the monthly KGB Bar reading series, Fantastic Fiction. I ran into a couple of my teachers from Clarion San Diego, and some writers I admire, and a blogger who is a treasure. The ambiance and the sophisticated characters made me feel like I was inside a Degas painting.

Above you see Chris with a manhattan. Chris performed one of the parts in the reading of my play, Christendom, earlier this month. In the background is Liz Gorinsky from Tor. When I emailed Chris to identify the other woman he wrote:

That is Helen Pilinovsky. She is a gemologist, and formerly a professor of folklore.

KGB Bar is the Folies Bergere of the speck fick set.
