Literary Death Match
Time Out says
The combustive, international reading series pits acclaimed and burgeoning authors against one another to perform their best material for chatty judges. Two finalists are chosen—on merit and “intangibles”—to duke it out for the evening’s championship. This month, John Leguizamo joins guest judges Tess Morris, Christine Nangle and Jordan Carlos as they put burgeoning authors Sam Sax, Mitchell S. Jackson and Melissa Febos to the ultimate poetic test in a fast-paced read-off.
