Quiet Lightning at the Balboa Theater
Quiet Lightning hosts a literary mixtape at the Balboa Theater to kick off 2020 -- and our second decade! Curated by Sophia Passin and Kathleen Torrez, a live literary mixtape starring:

Sean Taylor  Robert Pesich  Caitlyn Clark  Thea Matthews  Tony Press  Sara Biel  Peter Bullen  Carol Dorf  Jennifer Kulbeck  Lea Gulino  Abe Becker  Chelsea Davis  Tomas Moniz  Richelle Lee Slota  Chandler Rae Fitchett  Elizabeth Horner Turner  Sarah Paris  Amy Smith

All selected writing is to be published in the sPARKLE & bLINK 103, featuring cover art by Golbanou Moghaddas and included with admission for the first 100 people!

After the readings (and a hearty intermission: beer, wine, and snacks are available at the concession stand), we will screen our feature-length film Water Under the Bridge (directed by Katie Wheeler-Dubin and Mila Puccini, 2016).

100% of ticket costs will go toward the sustainability of Quiet Lightning and the Balboa Theater. We never turn away anyone due to lack of funds!
