Five Points Reading Series

Hey, finally something I want to attend at the Workspace gallery in Lincoln Heights. Actually, I never know what goes on in that space, perhaps a calendar in their window would be helpful or some kind of outreach to the neighborhood. In any case, I missed Daniel Hernandez reading from his new book Down & Delirious in Mexico City a few weeks ago and happy to have the chance to hear him read right in my own neighborhood! See ya there!

  1. Daniel Hernandez’s book looks interesting. Reading the reviews at Amazon. I’ll probably get it.

  2. That place is small, I couldn’t hear shit outside even though they had a mic and amp (consider using the volume knob). But I could hear the Christians down the street fine.

  3. Workspace needs to blend in with the neighborhood, sell some tacos outside their ‘gallery’ or whatever the hell it is, maybe set up a speaker so that those who don’t fit in their tiny little closet sized place can at least hear whats going on…Do it like the Evangelicals across the street.
