anthology SF: Tales of the City
February 24, 2014
7:00 pm
La Movida
3066 24th Street, San Francisco

From North Beach to the Marina, from The Golden Gate to the Bay Bridge, this edition of Anthology will explore the cracks and crevices of San Francisco. From its frontier-town origins and days as counter-culture ground zero to its shifting and complicated present, we'll be celebrating the city for everything it is, isn't, and might still be. 

As always, our featured readers will be followed by an open mic where you can share your own two-minute (about 250 word) San Francisco story. We are always looking to choose featured readers from our open-mic crowd, so be bold and share! Sign-up for the open mic opens around 6:30, closes at 7:15, and is limited to 10 people.

Featured Readers: 
Frances Lefkowitz, William Taylor Jr, and Siamak Vossoughi.
