Literary Death Match!

Location: 
War Memorial Auditorium

Humanities Tennessee presents the 2nd annual Literary Death Match, a fundraiser for the Southern Festival of Books. Literary Death Match presents a  thrilling mix of four famous and emerging authors who perform their most electric writing in seven minutes or less before a lively audience and a panel of three all-star judges. After each pair of readings, the judges — focused on literary merit, performance and intangibles — take turns spouting hilarious, off-the-wall commentary about each story, then select their favorite to advance to the finals. The two finalists then compete in the Literary Death Match finale, which trades in the show’s literary sensibility for an absurd and comical climax to determine who takes home the Literary Death Match crown.

Contestants: Tiana Clark, Harrison Scott Key, Alex Sheshunoff, and Erica Wright 
Judges: Kwame Alexander, Dennis Dunaway (Alice Cooper band), and TBA
