Nostrovia! Press pulled into the Bay a bit more battered than usual for LitQuake San Francisco. More on the journey & our traveling bookstore coming as the days unfold, but more pressing is the Dictators’ March, a short film presented by The Arts Resistance.
“We create a passionate thinking space outside of the totalitarian mentality. During the last three years, we staged literary theater shows, painting exhibits, poetry translation readings, and standup comedy nights and raised funds and awareness for various causes including Nepalese hospital for handicapped, LGBT and human rights in Russia, the US mobile bookstore run by teenagers, Syrian refugees in Europe and more.”
from The Arts Resistance
