Ask the Oracle at Hotel Sorrento
with Hugo House
February 8, 2016 @ 7:00 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?
Who better to answer these questions than a gaggle of “oracles” — i.e. writers — who will join us on stage every month at Hotel Sorrento?
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.
The first “Ask the Oracle” features novelist Rebecca Makkai, screenwriter and novelist Ramon Isao, and fiction writer Stacey Levine.
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.”
