Literary Death Match at OBERON
Let the six-year anniversary of Literary Death Match roll on! To celebrate six years (and the LA Times kindly calling them “one of the most entertaining reading series ever”) they are storming Beantown, once again at OBERON, with more artistry than Tree of Life and more thoughtful, silent pauses than The Artist. Get ready for a rollickin’ good time!
The night’s trio of all-star judges will be headlined by best-selling author/Academy Award-nominee Tom Perrotta (author of The Leftovers, Little Children and Election), comedian/writing hilariteur Joe Piccirillo (one half of Conan or Bust), and chanteuse Niki Luparelli (one-half of the Steamy Bohemians)!
They’ll judge a masterful foursome of diverse scribes, including children’s book genius Bob Shea (author of Dinosaur vs. The Potty), Fringe literary magazine editor Lizzie Stark (author of Leaving Mundania), the 2010 Rona Jaffe Foundation Writer’s Award winner Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich and one more to be announced in seconds!
