March 29 Living Room w/ Mary Sherwin

March 23, 2011

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live as another person, if only for a day? For a week?

For three years?

Mary Paynter Sherwin brings us the famous case of Martin Guerre for inspiration this week as we look at capturing another person’s life in our work. We’ll read examples from other writers that might make us think twice about what it means to be an imposter. We may even have a chance to become döpplegangers ourselves.

There’ll be plenty of time for people to read their own pieces…especially if they’re about someone else. 7P, March 29, 2011 @ SPLAB. Don’t miss it!—-

Your Living Room donation of $5 helps SPLAB put on special events and continue programming AND gets you an entry in our monthly raffle. Please bring 8 copies of the work you plan to read. If you do not bring copies, they are available for 10c.

Living Room happens at SPLAB in the Cultural Corner of the old Columbia School, between Rainier AV S and 36th AV S, on Edmunds. We’re 2 blocks from the Columbia City Link Light Rail Station. Free parking is available on the school grounds.
