Shipwreck Presents: The Wind-up Bird Chronicle

October 4, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm UTC+0

$12 – $15

Murakami has a new book out on 10/9 (preorder link below), and censors in Hong Kong have declared it ‘obscene,’ so naturally, we’re going in.

Don’t worry if you haven’t read The Wind-up Bird Chronicle: consider this a gross Murakami bingo night, with swag, and probably copies of the new book to give away to lucky folks. BYO Cutty Sark.

$12 advance, $15 door, ticket includes *open bar* for 21+, and admission to the afterparty at The Alembic (1725 Haight). Seats tend to sell out fast; we encourage you to buy early.  Tickets on sale now!

Welcome, Shipsters, to San Francisco’s premier literary erotic fanfiction event.

Six Great Writers destroy six notable characters from one Great Book on the first Thursday of every month at our home base, the Booksmith in San Francisco.

Fics are blind-read by our Thespian-in-Residence, Baruch Porras-Hernandez, and you choose the best ship before the writers are unmasked. The winner is cast off from polite society, and invited back the next month to defend their title.

Critics are saying:

… the most despicable literary event possible.

I’m so lost and so scared

… an affront to literature.

wonderfully, masterfully, hilariously disgusting.

come if you are high on marijuana cigarettes and have done sex before.

Shipwreck will bring you to madness and you may never return.

I do not care for this.
