SLICE Literary Presents: Live Exquisite Corpse Reading

PowerHouse has lined up #1 New York Times bestsellers and literary superstars right alongside some of this year’s biggest debut authors for an Exquisite Corpse unlike any you’ve ever seen (LIVE!).

SLICE’s Randy Brown Winston & The Authors Guild’s Paul Morris are serving as hosts for the reading and will keep even the most unruly writers in line!

Here’s how this Exquisite Corpse game works: One author plucks a sentence from a hat and uses that sentence to kick off a story—right there, on the spot. The next author gets the last sentence of the first author’s installment (without hearing anything that preceded it) and continues the story. And so on. The result is a story stitched together, live, right before your eyes, without any preparation, by these literary masters:

Jessie ChaffeeFlorence in Ecstasy
Julia FierroThe Gypsy Moth Summer
Lev GrossmanThe Magicians Trilogy
Luis JamarilloThe Doctor’s Wife
Porochista KhakpourThe Last Illusion
Lisa KoThe Leavers
Elissa SchappellBlueprints for Building Better Girls
Rakesh SatyalNo One Can Pronounce My Name
Rob SpillmanAll Tomorrow’s Parties

There will be complimentary snacks and beverages, too
