Full Belly, Happy Brain

If you haven't caught one of the readings put on by Crys Lehman and Leonard Crosby in their voluminous backyard, then you've been missing out. And this week is your last chance of the season to catch one. This Thursday, Lehman and Crosby host a lineup that includes Sarah Bushman, whose poetry melted a roomful of faces last month at a house party in Oakland, and Juliana Delgado Lopera, who wrote the SF Weekly cover story “An Oral History of Queer Latin Immigrants” that came out during Pride. Fellow readers include Dan Lau, Emily Weinstein, Nick Johnson, and Carolyn Ho, all of whom have small posses of fans who follow them around. No joke. This series begins with free booze and food, including homemade pie made from the fruit of the yard's sole pear tree. The readings start when everyone's sated, and a bonfire follows.
