This week’s top literary arts events include reading by Jason Benlevi, Doug Rice, and a crime-ridden Feast of Words.

This Thursday, Jason Benlevi will present Too Much Magic:¬†Pulling the Plug on the Cult of Tech, at Books Inc. in Opera Plaza. With internet privacy being such a hot topic of controversy, Benlevi shows a love/hate relationship with technology and reveals how marketers and venture capitalists alike use digital “magic” to invade individual privacy.

On Sunday, check out author Doug Rice as he¬†presents Dream Memoirs of a Fabulist at Modern Times. Dream Memoirs of a Fabulist, Rice’s first book in nearly 10-years, is an exposed memoir, told through dreamy, artsy photographs and language.

This month’s Feast of Words: A Literary Potluck, will be held this Tuesday at the SOMArts Cultural Center.¬†Writers and foodies will come together to eat, write and share. This month’s co-hosts, Lex Leifheit and Irina Zadov, invite writers and foodies of all levels to eat and share under the theme,”I Am Crime”. In addition to potluck dishes, Old Skool Cafe, a local youth-run supperclub, will provide dinner for the audience.
