Special Thursday Edition with Writ Large Press

This special edition TNC is co-presented with the uber badass indie literary group, Writ Large Press. Join us on THURSDAY, JULY 6 as we celebrate the opening of #90X90.

Writ Large Press is producing their wildly successful #90X90 initiative -- 90 literary & cultural events in 90 CONSECUTIVE DAYS -- starting on July 5. LITTLE TOKYO will be one of the main home spots for #90X90.

Our Tuesday Night Project director + Writ Large Press author, traci kato-kiriyama, is one of the curators for the events happening in Little Tokyo throughout #90X90, so she and TNC producer/lead curator, Sean Miura, are putting their heads together to bring this special edition of T(hursday)NC!!
