While I was in San Francisco I had the chance to go to a great reading at the Edinburgh Castle Pub. The funny thing about it is that I was in San Francisco for the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union and this pub is one of the favorite hangouts of the geophysicists. I wasn't familiar with the reading series that is held there until now. Its a fantastic series with lots of great authors. This night several of the writers from the Akashic San Francisco Noir collection read from their works. The writers featured in this picture are David Corbett, Peter Maravelis (editor), Michelle Tea, John Longhi, and David Henry Sterry. Sin Siracco also read but isn't in the picture.
