PHOTOS: Jennifer Egan, James Hannaham, & Our 100th Issue Party

Last night Electric Literature celebrated our 100th issue of Recommended Reading with a live installation of “Card Tricks” by James Hannaham, who also gave a reading and was later joined in conversation by Jennifer Egan. Plus, there was beer and edible art.

Talking about his conceptual fiction and interest in working outside the lines of traditional storytelling, Hannaham told Egan, “I just want to fuck shit up (in a playful, non-violent way).” You can see an artistic rendering of the moment here.

If you missed the event, you can see “Card Tricks” and read an introduction by Jennifer Egan at Recommended Reading. We’ll also soon start hosting a regular salon series, so stay tuned for more Electric Literature events!
