Another Vermin on the Mount is in the books! After a great event in LA, Portland writer Kevin Maloney kicked things off at 3rdSpace in San Diego with a reading from his debut novella Cult of Loretta. SD local Julia Dixon Evans read “19 Things Only People Who Are Not Going to Survive the Hour Will Understand.” Emile Barrios read a fiction piece about delicious pizza called “The Pickle Rabbi.” After a brief intermission, Ana Carrete, visiting from Austin by way of Tijuana, read a selection of poems. Jerry Gabriel, visiting from Maryland by way of Flagstaff, Arizona, shared an excerpt from his new collection of long stories, The Let Go. Karen Stefano wrapped up the evening with a reading from her new book The Secret Games of Words. (For more images, check out Bonnie ZoBell’s photos.) Save the date: Vermin will return to San Diego to celebrate 11 years of irreverent readings on Aug 22, 2015!
