The Literary Death Match is hitting the Twin Cities Thursday night. The reading series occurs regularly in New York City, San Francisco and London, and has launched in 39 cities worldwide including Beijing, Edinburgh, Chicago and Paris.
Here's how Literary Death Match creator Todd Zuniga explains the event: It's four writers reading their own work for seven minutes or less, three all-stars judge them on literary merit, performance and intangibles, and then a finalist from each of the two rounds competes in a finale that will basically change their life and brain just by seeing it.
Tom Weber will talk with Zuniga during The Daily Circuit Thursday. The Literary Death Match happens at the Nomad World Pub in Minneapolis at 7:35 p.m. Tickets are $10 at the door.
