Story Club returns tonight with writers experienced in the racy and roller derby
Story Club – a monthly literary event that operates like a poetry slam – returns Thursday with three slots for audience members and three featured performers: Jon Papernick, senior writer-in-residence at Emerson College; Jefferson Bites, host of “Bare: True Stories of Sex, Desire and Romance”; and Jill Jaracz, writer and official with the Boston Derby Dames Roller Derby League.
Torontonian Papernick has an alter-ego: Papernick the Book Peddler, who sells his wares in farmers markets from a fluorescent pushcart and has been featured in The Huffington Post, The Boston Globe, The Jewish Week, Poets and Writers and elsewhere. His latest work is “XYXX,” a print-on-demand limited-edition anthology of erotic short fiction – putting him in good company with Bites, a New Yorker whose racy storytelling event began December at the Middle East.
Jaracz, a Chicago resident who relocated recently to Boston, is a consumer goods researcher and freelance writer who’s recent work includes every thing from “Bling Management” to “Match-On-Card Biometrics.”
The three audience members are chosen by raffle. The audience votes for the night’s best story.
