Ask the Oracle at Hotel Sorrento
with Hugo House
May 8 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Will you get that job you’re gunning for?
Should you tell her you love her?
Do you dare disturb the universe?
All the audience has to do is show up, write questions on sticky notes, and hand them to our mysterious, velvet tuxedo’ed host, poet Johnny Horton, before the show. He’ll pick a number of questions to pose to our team of writer-oracles, who will be all set to solve your worldly problems with prescient passages from their books. This month’s oracles are Margot Kahn Case, Chelsea Werner-Jatzke, and Samar Abulhassan.
Question: Should I move to a new city soon?
Answer (found by opening Richard Hugo’s Triggering Town to a random page): “The 1944 Italy I remembered brown and gray and lifeless. Every city, every small town reeked.”
