Michelle Tea Hosts the (Completely Awesome) Radar Reading Series

The Radar Reading Series wants to give you a cookie and strain your brain. Organizer (and occasional contributor to the Exhibitionist) Michelle Tea is an underground queer literary icon, as uncompromising in her support of independent artists as she is prolific and hardworking. Her novel Valencia became a defining narrative for young, punk-influenced queer women, and made the Mission District famous as a mecca for lesbians, transgender people, and the poor-yet-clothing-obsessed; it's soon to become a multidirector film project. So when she bakes cookies, with her own hands, in her own oven, brings them to the library, and offers them to people who ask questions of the readers who've just performed, it's fucking special and magical.
