On May 18th, Literature for Life founder and director Jervey Tervalon and managing editor Rosalind Helfand invite the public to find out more about their organization and to welcome the launch of Literature for Life’s Issue 2 literary journal, as well as their “totally transformed” website.
Pulitzer Prize-winner Jonathan Gold has contributed his story “N.W.A.: A Hard Act to Follow” to Issue 2, Celeste Gonzalez her “Street Trash” poems, and Tyra Lynn her story “You Remember Everything that Happened.”
Dramatic readings will be given by Andrew Nicholls, Miranda Morgan, Cheryl Klein, Lainnie Capouya, Andrew Ramirez, and Tervalon himself. Artwork by Jessica Chrysler, Scott Gandell, Allison Strauss, and Leora Wien—all featured in Issue 2—will be available for viewing and purchase. And, of course, there will be plenty of food and drink.
