Having just last month started a new monthly backdoor reading series, recent California College of the Arts MFAers Crys Lehman and Leonard Crosby host a quadforce of talent for June's One Lone Pear Tree: Miquila Alejandre, Phil Lumsden, Juliana Paslay, and Melissa Kuhn. In case you haven't noticed, house parties are the best kind of parties, especially when there's a yard involved; less than a week from the solstice, this is perhaps the perfect time for an outdoor reading. "Wine, beer, snacky foodstuffs" are all provided, though you are encouraged to bring food, drinks, and/or musical instruments to add to the general (or just your own private) bounty. In addition to an actual pear tree, this yard also has a fire pit, which will be put to good use after and perhaps even during the readings. The One Lone Pear Tree series will continue on fourth Thursdays of each month.
