Congratulations to Michael McAllister for the continuing success of his “Barbershop Reading Series” — button-pushing literary events held right in the middle of an actual barbershop.
This Saturday at 8 p.m
A literary “barbershop quartet” will kick things off this Saturday at 8 p.m. at Joe’s Barbershop on 2150 Market Street (between Church and Sanchez) out here in San Francisco.
This month’s barbershop quartet includes:
KATIE CROUCH, whose debut novel, GIRLS IN TRUCKS, about Southern debs gone bad, was a New York Times Bestseller.
KEMBLE SCOTT, author of the bestselling novel SOMA, whose new novel, THE SOWER is a twisted thriller about a San Francisco bad boy who becomes the sole carrier of a manmade virus that appears to be the cure for all diseases.
The organizers suggest arriving a little early, especially if you want to kick back in one of the barber chairs.Suggested donation: $5. That donation helps to cover expenses and buys you Kettle Salt and Pepper potato chips, baked goods, cold beer, and a Diet Coke or two.
