“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.
