October 9, 2020 -- From the imagined history of a 19th-century revolutionary cell to a look at LA's urban bicycle culture, the Santa Monica Review's latest issue offers a romp through different times and places.
The fall 2020 issue of Santa Monica College's (SMC) national literary arts journal features 16 original stories and essays by established authors and emerging writers.
“These stories and essays travel near and far, in territories of the imagination,” said Andrew Tonkovich, the Review's editor and host of the weekly show “Bibliocracy” on KPFK (90.7 FM).
“In no particular order, you’ll find a girl stranded on a magical island, revisionist Western frauds, an atheist waitress, urban cycling culture, a suburban squatter, and a kids’ film that may or may not -- as so much memory -- have even ever existed.”
A launch party featuring Review author readings will be held online from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, October 25. Tickets ($10 donation suggested) and access to the party are available through Brownpapertickets.com (Search for: “Santa Monica Review Presents”).The celebration will be introduced by novelist Keenan Norris ("Brother and the Dancer") and features readings by five recent contributors to the magazine.
The Review will join the LA Lit Crawl 2020 Vision (with LA Library) on Saturday, October 24, at 3 p.m. to present a half-hour, live online “Read It Forward” segment featuring So Cal literary notables reading work by emerging writers recently showcased in the magazine.
