VOTM: What’s the most unusual experience you’ve had at a reading?
BARRAGAN: The most unusual thing that ever happened to me at a reading was at Book Show. I tried to make an entrance through that big cutout she used to have in the middle of the store, but the sparkly fringe that decorated the opening of the cutout obscured my view of what was on the other side. I ended up coming through the fringe, whacking the mic and the book stand that had been left for me to use, and nearly knocking both over. (I only succeeded in toppling the book stand.)
Bianca Barragan has been writing weird zines since 2010, though less frequently now. The last thing she wrote was about taking edibles at the Renaissance Pleasure Faire. She’s an organizer of the L.A. Zine Fest.
Come see Bianca read at Book Show in Highland Park on Friday, August 19 at 7:30pm
