Left Margin LIT 3rd Birthday Party (and Reading)

Come celebrate with Left Margin LIT as they cap their 3rd year as the East Bay's creative writing center/workspace. This is also their 3rd event at Novel Brewing, the most literary brewery in California!

Sample Novel Brewing's finest beers and ales on tap. Soak in their friendly, neighborhood atmosphere. Socialize with our writing community. Eat cake!

And enjoy some short readings by Left Margin instructors: Zubair Ahmed, Katharine Dion, Rachel Richardson, and Laleh Khadivi.

Zubair Ahmed was born and raised in Bangladesh. He and his family immigrated to the U.S in 2005 after winning the DV Lottery. He is the author of Ashulia, a chapbook, and City of Rivers, the third book in the McSweeney’s Poetry Series. He lives in Oakland, where he works as a software engineer.

Katharine Dion is the author of the novel The Dependents, which has been translated into four languages. The San Francisco Chronicle called the novel “a gorgeously meditative debut about how unfully we live our lives or know ourselves and our loved ones.”

Laleh Khadivi's novels include The Age of Orphans, The Walking, and A Good Country. She teaches in the MFA program at the University of San Francisco and was the recipient of a 2016 National Endowment for the Arts Grant and a 2016 Pushcart Prize.

Rachel Richardson is co-founder and co-director of Left Margin LIT. She is also the author of two books of poems, Hundred-Year Wave and Copperhead.

Artist Reception :: Kala Minko, Photographer :: "No Border Walls"

The photography of Kala Minko will adorn the walls of Novel Brewing Co. through September. Come by to check them out AND come meet the artist on Thursday, August 29th at 7 pm!

Kala is a concept-driven photographer who grew up in rural Georgia. Still true to her roots and humble beginnings, she strives to tell genuine stories with her photos. She is inspired by talented musicians, delicious food, adventurous travel and wild hair. Her photos have been featured in Edible East Bay, East Bay Express, Oakland Magazine, and Alameda Magazine.

From the artist:

Show: No Border Wall is a visual story of the vibrancy and color of Mexico. The frames were built by hand to echo this theme. This collection of photos is a story of my first trip to Mexico. While there, President Trump declared a national emergency at the border and as I sat, and ate the most delicious food and talked with the most generous local people I could see how untrue that declaration was and still is. I decided to show Mexico as soft, as colorful, and as absolutely beautiful as I could. These photos are my small attempt at that.

There will also be projected photos of the people of Mexico that I met and talked with. These will play alongside the hanging photos. I hope you will join me August 29th to drink, celebrate and discuss the theme and story behind the exhibition.
