Tonight! Denver! Memory, Prophecy, and Fantasy: Tuesday July 16 Fbomb Featuring Karen Stefano!

Tonight! In Denver!

Memory, Prophecy, and Fantasy (7:30 PM at The Mercury Cafe, 2199 California Street, Denver)

Clive Barker introduces his novel Everville with the lines “Memory, prophecy, and fantasy—the past, the future, and the dreaming moment between—are all in one country, living one immortal day. To know that is Wisdom. To use it is the Art.” Fbomb is like that in a way, given that every event is a collection of our writing thinking its way into the future informed by the past events of the series. David S. Atkinson first came to the Fbomb in August of 2015 when Karen Stefano was one of the featured readers and this month has an opportunity to bring that all full circle by inviting Karen back to share from her new book, What A Body Remembers: A Memoir of Sexual Assault and Its Aftermath. We also invite all of you to join us Tuesday July 16 (7:30 PM, open mic signup starts at 7:00 PM) at the Mercury Café to listen and/or share your own works of memory, prophecy, and fantasy.

About David S. Atkinson

David S. Atkinson enjoys typing about himself in the third person, although he does not generally enjoy speaking in such a fashion.
