Cancelled! Adult Contemporary Presents: Morgan Bassichis, Jibz Cameron & Jack Halberstam

December 4, 2014 @ 8:30 PM - 10:00 PM

Morning of December 4
Organizers Katherine Brewer Ball and Svetlana Kitto write:
In light of the Eric Garner non-indictment, and the huge protests planned in NYC and across the country, we are canceling tonight’s Adult Contemporary. To honor the lives of Michael Brown, Tamir Rice, Eric Garner, and the countless others who have lost their lives to the violent system of white supremacy in this country, and to participate in this extraordinary movement that we are so inspired by, the organizers and readers of this week’s Adult Contemporary will be in the streets tonight. We are so grateful to our readers and BGSQD for all their work and want to thank everyone who planned on coming tonight—we will keep you posted on future events.
 #BlackLivesMatter #ShutItDown


Join us for the Holiday Spectacular event of ADULT CONTEMPORARY, featuring Morgan Bassichis, Jibz Cameron & Jack Halberstam at BGSQD!

ADULT CONTEMPORARY is an experimental non/fiction salon series featuring readings, lectures, performances and interviews with and by established and emerging writers. We seek out first person perspectives characterized by the urgent and the everyday; true stories that connect us to the big by way of the small, uneventful, and unexpected. Readings will be followed by informal conversations.

Organized by Katherine Brewer Ball and Svetlana Kitto.
