  • Nomadic Press 2926 Foothill Blvd Oakland, CA 94601 (map)

Nomadic Press is pleased to announce the Nomadic salon debut performances of Baruch Porras-Hernandez and Molly McCloy with music by the ever-so-lovely T. B. D.

She holds an M.F.A. in nonfiction from The New School, and teaches at Pima Community College in Tucson. Currently on sabbatical, Molly is touring "Mad Dog Grudges," her one-woman show that unravels her screwed-up family's legacy of violence and addiction, explores the ridiculousness of grudges, and asks what it takes to forgive others . . . and yourself.

There is ample street parking, but just to make it easy, there is an O'Reilly Auto Parts/Walgreens on the corner of Fruitvale and Foothill with a huge parking lot. Here's a Google Map link: 

Nomadic Press should show up on that map as well. We are just in between Austin and Rutherford on Foothill.

Hope to see you soon!
