We are thrilled as hell to have been accepted to take part in the San Francisco Lit Crawl 2014. We’re excited to bring you readings by returning authors Jennifer Bosworth and Ben Loory, and by new (to us) readers Alex Rieser and Candy Shue!
JENNIFER BOSWORTH was born many years ago in a small town where there was nothing to do but read and get into trouble. She did plenty of both, which led her to a career writing about people who get into trouble. Her debut novel, “Struck,” about a teenage lightning addict and the end of the world, was published by FSG/Macmillan and featured as part of the Fierce Reads campaign. It has since been released as an audiobook, and has sold in Germany, Italy, Spain, Brazil, and Poland. Jennifer and her husband, director Ryan Bosworth, made an epic book trailer for “Struck,” so you should check that out if you like things that are awesome. Jenn’s follow-up novel, “The Killing Jar,” will be released from FSG “sometime in the foreseeable future.” Jenn is the writer half of a writer/director team with her husband. Their short films have screened at the LA Film and Music Festival, the Zero Film festival, the Promax BDA awards, and were featured on the Horror Haiku web channel.
BEN LOORY’s fables and tales have appeared in The New Yorker, on NPR‘s This American Life, at WordTheatre, and on Selected Shorts. His book Stories for Nighttime and Some for the Day (Penguin) was a selection of the Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers Program and won the Nobbie Award for Best Book of the Year.
ALEX RIESER is author of the poetry collection Emancipator, and lives in San Diego with his wife. His MFA is from the University of San Francisco.
CANDY “The Devil” SHUE has worked as a goldfish wrangler, a bookseller, a Disneyland cast member, a publisher’s sales rep, and an Australian book tour organizer. Her poetry and short stories have appeared in sparkle + blink, Washington Square Review, Drunken Boat, Works & Days Quarterly and other journals. She is an active member of the Bay Area Generations reading series, and when she is not writing, she can be found dreaming lucidly, collaborating with photographers and composers, and whispering to her dog, Lola.
