Memoirs of a Superfan, Volume 7.10: Superfan and more at LitCrawl!

Superfan and more at LitCrawl!
By Ravi Chandra, M.D.
October 9, 2012

This will come as a shock to CAAM readers – but I actually participate in ANOTHER festival in San Francisco!  And it’s not even film-related!

I’m excited about LitQuake this year, as it marks the third time I’ve been asked to perform my poetry with the editors and writers of INDIVISIBLE, the first-ever, prize-winning South Asian American Poetry Anthology that was published in 2010.  We will be performing in Phase 2 of LitCrawl.

Afterwards, traipse down the Mission for Phase 3 – for “Hyphen Magazine Interprets the South”.  It should be a great evening of Literary Adventure.  LitQuake is one of the premier literary events in the country – hope to see you there!  (If you’re interested, I’ll have copies of my book, a fox peeks out, for sale at the event.) Editor’s note: Congrats to Ravi for winning a Honorable Mention for Poetry at the 2012 SF Book Festival!
