Ishmael Reed touched on the Kaiser's moustache, shaggy professors, experiments that are also explosions, and Oakland developers. Frances Lefkowitz read the passage from To Have Not about eviction from Gatorville, and a micro-memoir about the deals surfers make to avoid sharks. Sona Avakian brought a story about a bad ventriloquist who is also a bad mother, that also included balloon animals. Kenton K. Yee flash-fictioned (okay so I made this verb up) about the ski-lifts of the afterlife and a younger sister who learns to fly. Matthew James DeCoster brought a coming of age story including the Hardy Boys, twirling, and Jackie Kennedy.
