Saab Lofton reads at City Hall


Saab Lofton reads from Defend the Archive!, his new science fiction novella, and shares his revolutionary poetry. A voice in the wilderness that refuses to be silenced, Lofton appears courtesy of a grant from 4Culture and additional support from City of Shoreline Public Art Program on Saturday, February 3, with doors opening for refreshments at 4:30pm and Lofton’s performance beginning at 5:00pm at City Hall, 17500 Midvale Ave N., Shoreline, 98133.

Originally from South Central Los Angeles, Lofton graduated from Evergreen College in Olympia before moving to Las Vegas to host the Saab Lofton Power Hour, a social justice radio program on KLAV, and win awards for his commentaries in Las Vegas City Life, an alternative weekly newspaper.

"…[W]onderful, imaginative, brilliant, and funny; a gift worth waiting for. Thank you! I really had a good time reading this. You took me on a ride I giddily enjoyed and provided surprises that I didn't see coming. And you made all this wickedly humorous, too. Sir, you have a robust imagination, a keen intellect, and a bottomless talent. Thank you! With much gratitude."– Professor Charles Johnson, National Book Award winner, MacArthur Fellow, former director of Creative Writing at UW
