Award-winning investigative journalist Justine Gubar read from her recently released Fanaticus: Mischief and Madness in the Modern Sports Fan, but it was Po Bronson--best-selling author of The Nudist on the Late Shift, What Should I Do With My Life, and Nurtureshock--who I'd come to hear.

The Basement Series also functions as a fundraiser for both Lit Camp, a juried writers conference I attended in 2014, and Scholar Match, a local non-profit organization that connects low-income students with free college counseling resources and services that make college possible.
The 2016 dates for Lit Camp are May 12 to May 15 at Mayacamas Ranch. The deadline for applications for 40 slots is January 31, 2016. According to the website:
Applicants should submit no more than 4,000 words of their best unpublished prose.
