Friday night we headed out with friends Katie & Liz to Long Beach historical landmark Bertrand Smith's Acres of Books, for a reading by writers featured in the inaugural issue of Spot Literary Magazine. SpotLit is a new magazine edited by California native, Susan Hansell who MC'd the reading, consisting of works by writers from various areas of the U.S.. Familiar images of Southern California were depicted in humorous, yet serious style in Suzanne Allen's poem "Milk" which referenced the "nuclear Double D's", and in Joshua Peralta's short story featuring the 'entirely fictious' Long Beach establishment, "Le Chambre Rouge".
