Shannon Sutlief Recommends
Literary arts group WordSpace has evolved its one-day Deep Ellum Lit Hop to a monthlong citywide celebration that will honor literature in several forms. The April 7 Kick-Off Party will include performances by spoken-word artists; dancers; experimental theater group Dead White Zombies; and MC 900 Ft. Jesus and Decadent Dub Team, as well as other musicians. Dallas Lit Hop will continue through April 29, when author Walter Mosley will speak at the Kessler Theater. Other events include a literary pub crawl, a filmmakers’ showcase, a poetry slam and Writers’ League of Texas’ One Page Salon.
