I've got a riddle.

What does this iphone app have to do with us? Nothing, but we still seem to have squeezed in that damn photo.

Halifax in the house!

There's an informal reciprocal relationship between Pittsburgh and Halifax, Nova Scotia. Some of our folks have attended residencies there, at the Anchor Archives project, and now we're pleased to have a Haligonian as a visiting writer this month.

Mark your calendars for the event that our visiting writer is hosting at the end of the month. We hope to see you there.

Writing Oppressions Not Your Own:
Queer feminist writer Mary Burnet reads from her novel addressing some of the oppressive histories of Nova Scotia, and shares her research and writing process. Come join a discussion about how folks can (and whether or not we/they should) write about oppressions that aren't our/their own, while remaining accountable to people who experience those oppressions and taking responsibility for our/their privilege.

Sunday, May 30th, 4-6 pm
Cyberpunk Apocalypse

Ker-bloom! reading tonight at AIR

Tonight we are celebrating the release of issue #83 of Artnoose's letterpress zine Ker-bloom!. This issue relates the story of six friends doing a week-long paid medical study together.

Local drag performer SlyShyFruitFly will kick the evening off with a performance, followed by a short set from local acoustic favorite Joddo. After that, Artnoose will read two issues of Ker-bloom! with Joddo accompanying on various string instruments. Yes friends, we at the Cyberpunk Apocalypse can predict the future, which is why we speak in the future tense.

The event is free to the people, although zines will be available for sale. Artnoose will be providing vegan cupcakes, biscuits, and xbeveragesx.

7-9 pm at AIR, 518 Foreland Street (on the North Side, yo!)

L'Apocalypse de Cyberpunk

Late last night we welcomed our first international writer into the Visiting Writer program. Mary flew in from Canada and has already attended an event at the library and eaten O-fries on the Wall. The amount of French spoken around the house has increased exponentially--- we can draw you a graph if you want--- and we're really looking forward to the literary event that Mary will be hosting at the end of the month. More details as they form.

As you can see, the cloud mural in the back house is complete, so if you want to imagine you're floating across an unnaturally placid ocean, you're welcome to.
