LA-Lit: Christine Wertheim
LA-Lit interviews Christine Wertheim
Sunday, September 23 at 5pm
We’d like to invite you to a live radio recording, reading & conversation this coming Sunday, September 23 at 5 p.m. at Betalevel in Chinatown. Christine Wertheim will be the featured writer on LA-lit, a radio show co-curated by Mathew Timmons & Stephanie Rioux. The show (& hence the recording) lasts a little over an hour and will be about 30 minutes of reading & about 30 minutes of questions & answers/further questions—alternating between the two modes in hopes of creating a space for dynamic conversation.
Christine Wertheim writes poetics and aesthetic criticism. Her book "+|'me'S-pace," was published in 2007 by Les Figues Press. Other work has appeared in La Petite Zine, Five Fingers Review, Cabinet, Open Letter, Art History vs Aesthetics, and X-TRA. She co-organizes an annual writing conference whose publications are Séance (2006), and The Noulipian Analects (2007), and co-directs The Institute For Figuring. She teaches writing, literature and feminisms in the school of Critical Studies at CalArts.
LA-Lit interviews poets and writers in the Los Angeles area. Reflecting the shifting nature of Los Angeles as a place, this may mean writers that have lived in LA all their lives or writers who happen to be in LA for a few days. LA-Lit is a place for the literary culture of Los Angeles to develop and exhibit itself. Co-hosted and co-produced by Stephanie Rioux and Mathew Timmons, LA-Lit is sponsored by Superbunker and recorded at Betalevel. You can subscribe to the LA-Lit podcast by visiting our website and dragging the Subscribe link from the sidebar to your podcast folder in iTunes, or download past shows by visiting the writer’s page on the website.
Ideally we will have an audience made up of people who are inclined to jot down a thought, query, doubt, or other incitement. During the second half of the show the floor will be opened for questions from the audience.
Please do your best not to arrive late, so as to minimize the sounds of shuffling & stair-creaking while the show is being recorded.
Feel free to forward this invitation on to your friends and neighbors. For more information, visit http://LA-Lit.com.
We will be delighted to see you there,
Mathew Timmons & Stephanie Rioux
