Fourteen Hills' D.W. Lichtenberg Battles It Out At Literary Death Match San Francisco

This Friday, ladies and gentlemen, we are going to witness the most anticipated word-to-word match in the history of professional literature, the Literary Death Match Championship of San Francisco.

Are you ready?  Literature fans, are you ready?  For the thousands in attendance and the millions watching around the world, from the literary capitol of the world, San Francisco, ladies and gentlemen, let’s get ready to rumble.

Your judges for tonight’s contest will be Porchlight’s Arline Klatte, cartoonist Michael Capozzola, and Opium’s Todd Zuniga.

And now, on your feet, time to greet your home-town poet, D. W. Lichtenberg, from San Francisco State University, representing Fourteen Hills Press, by way of New York and Philadelphia.  He is 23 years old, the author of The Ancient Book of Hip, and the winner of the 2009 Michael Rubin Book Award.

And now ladies and gentlemen, from the Elbo Room, let’s get ready to rumble!

(O.K., fine. So maybe San Francisco's Literary Death Match is an event that's been happening
once a month since 2006. Still, it isn't every month that Fourteen Hills gets to root for one of its own.)

Here's the info. Be there and cheer loud!

DATE: Friday, November 13, 2009

TIME: Doors open at 6:30pm, show at 7:15 p.m.

LOCATION: The Elbo Room, 647 Valencia Street, San Francisco, CA
