The Farallon Review will partner with Stories on Stage Davis to present the works of authors Paul Mann and Joseph Rathgeber at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, March 8, at the Pence Gallery, 212 D St. The suggested donation is $5.
Paul Mann’s short story “Art to Medicine,” which appeared in the 2010 edition of The Farallon Review, will be read by Tim Gaffaney, a local actor and Stories on Stage casting director. A current resident of Northern California, Mann is writing a book that draws upon his experiences in his home state of Florida.
Author Joseph Rathgeber’s short story “Propane,” published in the Farallon Review in 2013, will be read by Joshua Laskey, director of the Sacramento Shakespeare Ensemble.
Prior to the featured readings, Tim Foley, editor of The Farallon Review, will share insights about the creative processes involved in discovering and publishing prose fiction.
“I’m interested in small, beautiful gems,” Foley said, “pieces that entertain and challenge, that connect the mind and spirit.”
The Farallon Review evolved from Foley’s collaboration with a community of writers who gathered to share their work in a San Francisco cafe between 2001 and 2006. He continues the tradition of bringing fiction to public venues at the journal’s launch parties held in Sacramento and the Bay Area.
The journal’s name is inspired by the group of islands that lie in the Pacific Ocean between the Golden Gate Bridge and Point Reyes.
