THIS MODERN LIFE
See UCR Palm Desert writers and friends during Palm Springs
Modernism Week's only literary event.
3-4 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 17
Modernism Week CAMP, 333 S. Palm Canyon Dr.
At This Modern Life, local writers share stories that highlight the quirks and character that make the desert unique in a literary performance, with a modern twist. Four writers. Four readings. Shocking short stories and amusing essays to titillate the modernist sensibility.
Moderated by local literary leading man Tod Goldberg, author of more than a dozen books, this event showcases famous and emerging authors performing their most compelling writing in front of a lively audience. Featured readers include short story writer Alex Altman, essayist and journalist Maggie Downs, and the New York Times-bestselling memoirist Emily Rapp.
Take robust and engaging narratives, add a liberal pour of Palm Springs and shake it all up. What you’ll get is one audacious event that reveals the truths, lies and eccentricities of this modern life.
This event is 18 years and over, due to the adult content of some stories. A meet-and-greet with the authors will be available following the presentation.
A portion of ticket sales will support scholarships for creative writing students at UCR Palm Desert.
