Anyone who attended a Fourteen Hills release party during Hollie Hardy’s legendary term as the journal’s editor-in-chief knows she throws a dignified rager. The launch for her much-anticipated debut collection How to Take a Bullet and Other Survival Poems features readings by an all-star cast: Peter Bullen, Maisha Z. Johnson, Tomas Moniz, Alexandra Naughton, SB Stokes, William Taylor Jr., and Matthew Zapruder — all at the SF Motorcycle Club, with live music by Wreck This Place and pulled pork sandwiches by Smokin’ Oak Barbecue. Hardy’s book, which takes its titles and jumping off points from The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook, “sees our age of self-help and DIY culture as an aesthetic vehicle for more ritualistic and artful re-makings of the self in language and hip codes,” says award-winning poet Major Jackson.
