Kitchen Sink, the Oakland-based literary magazine "for people who think too much," is going under. Thanks to difficulties with its distributor, the mag has only one more issue, its sixteenth in the span of five years, coming out this spring. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't check out the fifth installment of Telegraph Stories, a storytelling and music series event put on this Sunday by the mag's parent organization. Details follow after the jump.
The fifth installment of our ever-expanding, true-life storytelling and live music series, Telegraph Stories, returns home to roost at Mama Buzz for a hen party of lit'ry proportions. Following December's all-male reader lineup at the Make-Out Room, T-Stories 5 features an all-woman reader slate, with local luminary Beth Lisick (Everybody Into the Pool, Porchlight), KS 15 comic creator Julia Wertz (Fart Party), KS 15 Art Murmur chronicler Elka Weber, and KS Revolution and fiction editor Elka Karl. Plus: music by boys! The Moore Brothers and Golden Gram! KS senior and poetry editor Kaya Oakes hosts. If you haven't been to a Telegraph Stories yet, COME TO THIS ONE: Issue 15 is hitting newsstands now, and we need your help to get number 16 -- our LAST ISSUE EVER -- out in the Spring. www.kitchensinkmag.com
