BEYOND BAROQUE PRESENTS:
BEYOND WORDS:
ANDREW T. TONKOVICH & FRIENDS


produced by Jon Hess

Sunday, September 17th at 4:30 P.M.

Frequent contributors Richard Wirick (Kicking In), Diane Lefer (California Transit), Zlatina Sandalska and Santa Monica Review editor Andrew Tonkovich celebrate the newest issue of the West Coast lit mag with short readings. In nearly 30 years the magazine, founded by novelist and teacher Jim Krusoe, has published provocative, funny and challenging literary fiction and nonfiction. Printed twice yearly, the magazine is a project of Santa Monica College, with stories and essays featured in many of the annual "best of" collections including PEN/O. Henry, Pushcart and Best American series.
