With Lit Crawl Done, We Look To The Future

A few days have passed, but we're still excited by how much fun we had at Lit Crawl on Oct 9. The readers were fabulous, the streets were overflowing with lit-lovers, and Fourteen Hills and Eleven Eleven had a great time at Muddy's Coffee House during Phase III of the event.

Jeannine Hall Gailey
Jeannine Hall Gailey (Vol 16.2) regaled us with pieces from her new collection, She Returns to the Floating World, due next year. She had several copies of her most recent book, Becoming the Villainess, on hand and generously signed copies. We also saw her cutting a rug at the Lit Crawl after-party at the Blue Macaw.

Lauren Hamlin
Lauren Hamlin (Vol 16.2) read from her entry to a McSweeney's columnist search, and was the only reader of the night who jumped on the impromptu stage at the front of the shop. She's also a finalist for the Headlands Center for the Arts residency.

Our next event will be at 7pm on Nov. 4 at the Space Gallery (1141 Polk Street, San Francisco). Join us as we celebrate the release of Everything Faces All Ways at Once, the 2010 Michael Rubin Book Award winner, by Zulema Renee Summerfield. Stay tuned, we have tons of details about the author, the book, and the party, still to come.

The crowd at Muddy's
In the spirit of updating you on all things Fourteen Hills, we should mention that we published Paloma in Fall 2009, and it was mentioned in the recent New York Times Sunday Book Review. Yes! Read Patricia Engel's "arresting" debut collection Vida or pick up Vol 16.1 to read it where it first appeared.

If you have any news or events about recent or forthcoming Fourteen Hills' contributors, please let us know.
