SJLA is extremely excited to host the traveling literary performance group Sister Spit here in Fresno. They’ll be at The Voice Shop (1296 N Wishon Ave) next Tuesday, April 9th at 7pm. The event is free and open to the public. Here’s a short description of the group:
Sister Spit was established in San Francisco in the early 1990’s as a weekly all-female open mic series, co-founded by Michelle Tea and Sini Anderson. The duo launched the first Sister Spit national tour in 1997: 2 vans chock-full with cutting-edge dyke female writers and performers. Since its inception, Sister Spit has crossed the country many times and re-merged in 2007 as Sister Spit- Next Generation featuring established writers with young, emerging queer and queer-influenced artists of all genders.
