Shipwreck Presents: The Wind-up Bird Chronicle
Murakami has a new book out on 10/9 (preorder link here), and censors in Hong Kong have declared it 'obscene,' so naturally, we're going in.
Since none of you have read it, though, we're going way back to the missing cat and the creepy well that cemented Murakami's weird and terrible aesthetic in the collective mind: The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle. (Don't worry if you haven't read The Wind-up Bird Chronicle: consider this a gross Murakami bingo night, with weird dream sex, sullen young girls, Cutty Sark, and strange asides about spaghetti. We'll have swag, and probably copies of the new book to give away to lucky folks.)
Featured Writers: Calvin Albright, Sarah Blake, August winner Corin Chellberg, Christina Ortega, Danielle Truppi, and a mysterious anonymous donor.
$12 advance, $15 door, ticket includes *open bar* for 21+, and admission to the afterparty at The Alembic (1725 Haight). Seats tend to sell out fast; we encourage you to buy early.
Please remember: Shipwreck tickets are non-transferable and non-refundable.
Welcome, Shipsters, to San Francisco's premier literary erotic fanfiction event.
Six Great Writers destroy six notable characters from one Great Book on the first Thursday of every month at our home base, the Booksmith in San Francisco.
Fics are blind-read by our Thespian-in-Residence, Baruch Porras-Hernandez, and you choose the best ship before the writers are unmasked. The winner is cast off from polite society, and invited back the next month to defend their title.
Critics are saying:
... the most despicable literary event
Im so lost and so scared
... an affront to literature.
wonderfully, masterfully, hilariously
come if you are high on marijuana cigarettes and have done sex before.
Shipwreck will bring you to madness and you may never return.
I do not care for this.
lovingly rendered artisanal small batch nightmares
PLEASE NOTE: No children are ever harmed at Shipwreck, and consent and inclusion are paramount. We're not dicks, we just like dick jokes.
