The Pride Literary Showcase takes place from 1:30 – 3:30 p.m. Saturday at the Piedmont Park Pavilion (the Bud Light Stage). Now in its eighth year, the annual literary showcase spotlights the works of local writers and poets, who will also be available to sign books during the event.
“Doing the Literary Showcase gives us the opportunity to do something different, not just music,” says JP Sheffield, Pride’s executive director.
Among the authors present will be Slam champ and spoken word artist Theresa Davis, who has represented Atlanta at both the Java Monkey and Art Amok Slam teams, performs at colleges and universities around the country and appeared in “The Vagina Monologues” with Jane Fonda.
Other participants include Franklin Abbott, author of the poetry collections “Mortal Love” and “Pink Zinnias”; Cleo Creech, editor of the anthology “Outside the Green Zone”; David-Matthew Barnes, whose young adult novel “Mesmerized” will be out in November and whose adult novel “Accidents Never Happen” will be out in 2011; poet Maudelle Driskell; actress/poet Lisa Allender, author of the upcoming poetry collection “Words From Water”; and “Girl in Need of a Tourniquet” author Lisa Johnson.
