Until then, check us out at the San Gabriel Valley Literary Festival!  Saturday, February 8, 2014 from 1:40pm – 2:00pm, a mini-presentation of Shades & Shadows will darken the stage of the dA Center for the Arts in the Pomona Arts Colony.

Our readers:

LAUREN CANDIA is the co-creator of the Shades & Shadows Reading Series. She holds a B.A. in Women’s Studies and Ethnic Studies from UC Riverside, and proudly claims the feminist title. When not planning literary events, she writes creepy stories and is currently working on her first YA novel.

JUSTIN ROBINSON Much like film noir, Justin Robinson was born and raised in Los Angeles. He splits his time between editing comic books, writing prose, and wondering what that disgusting smell is. Degrees in Anthropology and History prepared him for unemployment, but an obsession with horror fiction and a laundry list of phobias provided a more attractive option.

LILLIAM RIVERA is a 2013 PEN Center USA Emerging Voices Fellow and a 2013 Enchanted Land Fellow at A Room of Her Own Foundation. Her work has appeared or is forthcoming in Bellevue Literary Review, The, Los Angeles Review of Books, Writers Tribe Review Spring 2013, Antioch University’s Lunch Ticket, Sucker Literary, and Latina.
