Event Details

“Show Us Your Spines” Indie Writers Reading | SF Main Library

The Radar Reading Series has been going on for over 14 years now and starting 2018 they will be changing the format from a one-time reading 12 times a year to six month-long residencies that result in a bi-monthly presentation of work.

Show Us Your Spines is a month-long writer residency + reading in collaboration with the SF Public Library’s Hormel Center. For a month QTPOC writers will work with Hormel Center LGBT archives around a specific queer theme, writing/producing a piece that will then be read/presented the following month at the Hormel Center.

Each residency cohort will be comprised of four writers/artists, who will spend one month with a section/theme of the archives chosen by both RADAR and the library. During that month they will write/create a piece inspired by the chosen ephemera.

This Radar Reading Series welcomes the following artists:

  • Natalia M. Vigil is a queer Chicana writer, multi-media curator, and big sister born and raised in San Francisco.
  • S. Kay zaps tweet-sized tales on future and fun. She is a queer, Canadian author in a long-distance same sex marriage in San Francisco.
  • Shideh Etaat is a writer and teacher at Mission High School in San Francisco. She received her MFA in Creative Writing from San Francisco State University.
  • Ramona Garcia is a paper mache artist and dollmaker. Her interest in paper mache sculptures began in her home state in Guanajuato where the art of cartoneria (paper mache) is used by the local artisans to make mojigangas (giant dancing puppets) as well as other handcrafts such as catrinas and toys.
