The progressive reading series happens on the third Saturday of every month though the 2008 election at 7pm at the Makeout Room in San Francisco. 

We strongly recommend getting tickets in advance as these events sometimes sellout. Advance tickets get priority seating. 

On June 3 there will be an initiative on the state ballot disguised as a proposition for eminent domain reform. Hidden inside this bill is a ban on all rent control in the state of California. All funds from the March, April, and May readings will be going to efforts to save rent control.
