After a Litquake event for the ages, Literary Death Match is teaming with Reboot to return to San Francisco's Contemporary Jewish Museum for a November to remember. Writers will read from Unscrolled, a modern interpretation of the torah written by some of today’s best known writers. Don't miss it!
The night will feature four writers reading their own wonderful tales for seven minutes or less, judged by three all-star judges. Two finalists will be chosen to compete in the Literary Death Match finale, a vaguely-literary game that will steal your affection and make your heart pound.
Literary Merit: Zarina Zabrisky, author of short story collections Iron and A Cute Tombstone
Performance: Rabbi David Kasher, ordained in 2007, attended rabbinical school at Yeshivat Chovevei Torah
Intangibles: Nato Green, comedian behind The Nato Green Party, named SF's Best Comedian by the SF Weekly, Huffington Post, and CBS
