Pop-Up Magazine Returns to S.F. in February

Imagine The New Yorker‘s  “Cat Person” — a nonfiction story that weirdly went viral — but told live by the author.

Through Pop-Up Magazine, never-seen-again comedic musings, investigative reporting, human features, and others you’d find printed on a paper come to life. Luckily for San Francisco, the live magazine once again brings authors to their audiences over two night, Feb. 1- 2, at the Curran Theatre.

The seven-city tour of the “winter issue” is set to have guests like The Good Place screenwriter Cord Jefferson, BuzzFeed News criminal justice reporter Albert Samaha, and Rolling Stone staff writer Brittany Spanos. (The last show at the Paramount Theatre on Oct. 18 had comedian Aparna Nancherla.)

Other presenters include musician Adrian Quesada, documentarian Erin Lee Carr, and former Los Angeles Magazine editor-in-chief Mary Melton.

Tickets are now listed as “limited availability.”
