Literary Death Match, 2022

Oct 18, 2022

“The most entertaining reading series ever” (Los Angeles Times), Literary Death Match brings together world-class authors to read their most electric writing for five minutes or less before a panel of all-star judges.

This edition features readings from authors Amelia Gray, Jean Chen Ho, Rasheed Newson, and Prince Shakur, and includes judges Zach Anner, Viet Thanh Nguyen, and Kristina Wong with emcee and LDM creator Adrian Todd Zuniga. After each reading, the judges take turns spouting hilarious commentary about each story, and then select their favorite to advance to the finals. The two finalists then compete for the Literary Death Match crown.
