Dead Authors

Thanks to the miracle of science, very famous, extremely dead authors time travel to the present and are brought together to discuss their lives and works! But mostly, these dead authors fight like dead cats and dead dogs! And the audience gets to ask questions! That's you! YOU are the audience! I am saying you get to ask questions! INTERACTIVE!!!

Moderated monthly by H.G. Wells (Paul F. Tompkins)

October's guest: Lennon Parham as Flannery O'Connor!

Proceeds to benefit 826LA

About 826LA:

826LA is a nonprofit organization with locations in Venice and Echo Park, dedicated to supporting students ages 6 to 18 with their creative and expository writing skills and helping teachers inspire their students to write.  826LA's writing lab is fronted by the Echo Park Time Travel Mart, a convenience store catering to time travelers. All proceeds from the sale of our products--in our case, harpoons, togas, and dinosaur eggs--go straight to our student programs.
