Edo artist Nagasawa Rosetsu painted the image of a small fluffy puppy resting on a gigantic bull, proving that two seemingly incongruous figures can co-exist in harmony. In the same way, these Tuesday book events will facilitate conversations between published writers who normally don’t sit together but actually have intersecting experiences. Moderated by author Naomi Hirahara, BULL & PUPPY will investigate what “uncommon” authors may have in common. A poetry reading will open each session, which will end with a quick writing prompt for all attendees.
All events below will be at 341 FSN (341 E 1st Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012).
FREE ADMISSION. Capacity is limited. Informal seating is available on a first come, first served basis.
