Write Out Loud
Friday July 13, 2018 at 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The magic of books is undeniable. We flip their pages to unlock new adventures, new truths and new possibilities. The best books challenge our preconceived notions and open our minds. They build worlds—some resembling our own and some we’ve yet to discover. This summer, Mingei International Museum will explore the connections between VOLUMINOUS ART – Treasures from San Diego’s University Libraries and the wonder, intrigue and challenges of all things literary, from comic books to libraries to indie book shops.
Deepen your own relationship to books by hearing from local players in the literary scene reflect on their fields. Come early for a complimentary happy hour at 5pm, with beer, wine and snacks. The program will begin at 6pm, seating is limited.
Pre-Program Activity – Create your own zine with Museum Educators. Short for “magazine,” zines are forms of self expression—featuring text and/or image—that are small-scale produced or handmade.
Program (begins at 6pm) – Members of Write Out Loud San Diego will bring to life many works on display during one of their signature Story Concerts. Works include Poe’s The Raven, Melville’s Moby Dick, Dr. Seuss’ The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins and many more. Write Out Loud San Diego was founded in 2007 by Veronica Murphy and Walter Ritter as a way to bring communities together while bridging theater with literature.
