2:00 - 3:30

This program is now offered as a **virtual program only**. Thank you for your interest and understanding. 

Four writers who span generations, James Cagney, Lio Min, Charlie Jane Anders and Lydia Elias, read and discuss their work, their era, and the power of queer and trans literature. **ASL interpretation provided.** Presented by Foglifter Press.

James Cagney is the author of Black Steel Magnolias In The Hour Of Chaos Theory, winner of the PEN Oakland 2018 Josephine Miles Award. His newest book, Martian: The Saint of Loneliness, is the winner of the 2021 James Laughlin Award from the Academy of American Poets. It is due from Nomadic Press in 2022. 

Lio Min has listened to, played and performed, and written about music for most of their life. Their debut novel Beating Heart Baby is about boys, bands, and Los Angeles. They've profiled and interviewed acts including Japanese Breakfast, Rina Sawayama, MUNA, Caroline Polachek, Christine and the Queens, Raveena, Tei Shi, Speedy Ortiz, and Mitski.

Charlie Jane Anders is an author, columnist, and speaker living in San Francisco. She has written multiple science fiction books, including the Unstoppable series, and has published a book of essays, Never Say You Can't Survive, about how creativity bolsters resilience. She also hosts a recurring literary event, Writers with Drinks, in which local writers share their work with an appreciative and tipsy audience.

Lydia Elias is a queer, Ethiopian-American woman based in Oakland, CA. Her work includes poetry and personal essays. She has performed spoken word around Northern California. She received her Bachelor of Arts from Brown University. She enjoys spending time in nature and investing in community engagement in the Bay Area.
