Readings for Haiti

A gaggle of L.A. literary lights and musicians are gathering in Echo Park this Saturday to raise money for Partners in Health, which, organizer Ben Ehrenreich says, have been providing free medical care to Haiti's poor for the last two decades.

At Tropical de Nopal:

...a night of readings, music and dancing to raise money for medical aid to Haiti. We'll have readings from Will Alexander, Gloria Alvarez, Tisa Bryant, Percival Everett, Sesshu Foster, Veronica Gonzales, Jen Hofer, Doug Kearney, Chris Kraus, Maggie Nelson, Abel Salas ... plus live music from Ceci Bastida and Domingo Siete and DJ sets from Glenn Red, Concise, and Gomez comes alive. It will all get started at 8pm this coming Saturday at Trópico de Nopal Gallery in Echo Park. All the money we raise will go to Partners in Health.
Saturday January 30, 2010 at 8 p.m./Trópico de Nopal Gallery/1665 Beverly Blvd./Los Angeles, CA 90026/$10 at the door (more if you can spare it!)
