Jen Hofer hosts another Evening of Various Wonders in Cypress Park.
With Sommer Browning, Noah Eli Gordon, Janice Lee, Eric Lindley, and Sandra de la Loza.


Ahoy friends! Spring is upon us! Longer days, balmy nights, meandering bike rides, the sweet smells of jasmine, honeysuckle and smog… irresistible! Do not resist!

Tuesday, March 22, 7:00 p.m. onward

2905 Elm Street  Los Angeles  CA  90065
Home-baked sweets provided; additional treats welcome (vegan appreciated!)

The delights of Los Angeles will not be resisted by Sommer Browning and Noah Eli Gordon, who descend from their Rocky Mountain apex to grace us with their many charms. Please join me in welcoming them, along with the enchantments of three homegrown wonders:

Eric Lindley will play cat’s cradle with our heartstrings via prosey tunes and tuneful prose addressing (and possibly absolving) familial guilt, the soft erasure of bodies, and oblique metonymy.

The tangled strings of heartfelt hybridity will form monstrously rhythmic knots as Janice Lee orchestrates projected and performed adaptations from the score of her forthcoming book Daughter.

What might be found when divine work does the work of divining? A volunteer chorus of readers will perform their hearts out via selections from The Source, a work of ambient research and constrained bibliomancy by Noah Eli Gordon.

It doesn’t matter who holds the key to your heart!Sandra de la Lozawill set up an Autonomous Lock-picking Zone to demonstrate her pin-slipping prowess, and maybe teach us a thing or two while she’s at it.

Sommer Browning‘s projected poetry comics may shatter your newly-unlocked heart, but you’ll want nothing more than to store the pieces in the velveteen pocket of the poetry she will read aloud in the liveliest deadpan this side of the Mississippi.

It would be a pleasure to see you.
