The Smart Gals’ wing of this exhibition will revolve around our temporary sanctuary for society’s most endangered pastime, the Reading Preserve, and culminate in a Winter Picnic Performance featuring freshly baked bread from the Bicycle Bread Company, hot coffee from Cafécito Organico, savory music, and sweet bits of surprising theater performed by the likes Brendan Constantine, Lori Yeghiayan and others who’ve created original work for our shows lo these happy years. Throughout the week, guests will be invited to come read quietly, alongside Los Angeles-based authors who, over the years, have presented their work at The Speakeasy: Noël Alumit, Aimee Bender, Francesca Lia Block, Cecil Castellucci, Janet Fitch, David Francis. S.A. Griffin, Christopher Lepowski, Joseph F Mattson, Rita Williams, David Wollock and many more. In between chapters, guests may browse the complete collection of commemorative Bookmarks commissioned for The Speakeasy.
