Lasell Professor Competes in Literary Death Match

March 8, 2012

Part prize fight, part poetry slam: Literary Death Match (LDM) is a nationwide reading series that hand picks up-and-coming writers to compete before a panel of judges reading selections of their own work.

On March 8th, Lasell Professor Ken Calhoun, chair of the Art and Graphic Design Department and a writer, competed/performed at LDM at OBERON, in Harvard Square, Cambridge.

Literary Death Match, which holds events across the country, has been called "a combination of comedy, audience participation and high literature that makes for one of the most entertaining reading series ever."

At LDM, four writers compete in two rounds before an onstage panel of judges. Tonight's judges are best-selling author/Academy Award-nominee Tom Perrotta (author of The Leftovers, Little Children and Election), comedian/writing hilariteur Joe Piccirillo (one half of Conan or Bust), and chanteuse Niki Luparelli (one-half of the Steamy Bohemians).

The event was hosted by LDM creator Todd Zuniga and LDM Boston Executive Producer Kirsten Sims.
