Literary Activism 

Writer and activist Jason Flores-Williams is not a fan of quiet literary readings. If authors are engaged and write with passion, then shouldn't literary events be as inspired? While living in New York City, he stirred up readings, organized protests and offered commentary on WBAI radio. Now a resident of the Marigny, Flores-Williams (pictured) has put together a night of readings, discussion, music and socializing. Local musician Esquizito will open the evening and play following readings by Flores-Williams, Billy Sothern and Theodore Hamm. A local appeals lawyer in capital cases, Sothern recently published Down in New Orleans, a personal and social justice account of surviving Hurricane Katrina. Hamm is the founding editor of Brooklyn Rail, a radical journal of politics and art. His book The New Blue Media: 21st Century Progressive Politics and Culture is forthcoming. Free admission.
