Danielle Pafunda reading at MLA edition of the Red Rover Series: Saturday 1/11 in Chicago!





A collaborative reading for the Modern Language Association curated by Laura Goldstein, Jennifer Karmin & special guest Rover Laura Mullen 

at Outer Space Studio
1474 N. Milwaukee Ave
suggested donation $4

Our theme coincides with the 2014 MLA theme "Vulnerable Times". Readers will bring forward some writing (their own or by another) which is itself vulnerable or bears the marks of vulnerability upon it: forgotten work, work that nearly didn't exist, denied or discouraged work, etc. For the performance, readers will adhere to codes of vulnerability to create the order/disorder for the evening.
