The best American disaster tourism writing

After more than a year of bimonthly shows, Portuguese Artists Colony kicks it back up to monthly in its new home at The Make-Out Room. The literary group added Peter Orner and Roxane Beth Johnson as new columnists back in November, and introduce Alix Lambert as the newest member this Sunday. Lambert will read on the theme of "disaster tourist" along with a couple of short fiction mavens (Seth Fischer, in from Los Angeles, and SF Grotto-ite Elizabeth Bernstein), the poet and fellow Grotto-ite Maw Shein Win, and playwright Daniel Heath, who won last show's Live Writing contest and returns with a finished piece. In Live Writing, four guests write to an audience-determined theme (and to live music), then read what they produced; the audience votes and the winner returns. This month's contestants: Muthoni Kiarie, Allison Landa, Marge Manwaring, and Courtney Moreno, with music by Ladies in Blouses' Heather Yaeger.
