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

13243-banner-ArtsFeatureMichelleTea1[1]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 month, their featured readers are:

  • Marisa Crawford is the author of the poetry collections Reversible (2017) and The Haunted House (2010) from Switchback Books, as well as two chapbooks.
  • Zulfikar Ali Bhutto – As an artist of mixed Pakistani and Lebanese descent and having grown up in Pakistan, Bhutto sees his body caught in the middle of complex identity politics formed by centuries of colonialism and exacerbated by contemporary international politics.
  • Yuska Lutfi Tuanakotta graduated from Saint Mary’s College of California with double MFA degrees in Creative Fiction Writing and Creative Nonfiction Writing and was a Lambda Literary Fellow in Nonfiction.
  • Trinidad Escobar is an artist, mother, bruha, and educator from the Bay Area, California.
