Literary group Quiet Lightning is collaborating with City Lights for a reading in Kerouac Alley this week. Selected submitters will read their own works of writing to create what Quiet Lightning is known for: A tapestry of stories the group likes to refer to as a "literary mixtape." The upcoming show is part of Q.L.'s "Tour Through Town," during which the organization is teaming up with another Bay Area literary organization each month to collaborate and learn from each other and come up with new approaches to the lit reading format. Quiet Lightning shows always draw talented presenters and large audiences; this show at S.F.'s most famous literary alleyway should be no exception and will likely be haunted by the spirits of the city's heroes of the written word. Not in a scary way, but you know.
