The literary bash will feature live performances, cartooning, Everett Middle School's dance troupe, readings, local writers (pardon me, novelists), paper flower making, haiku writing, bon mots flying to and fro, and much, much, much more. The festivities go from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Mission Playground on Valencia Street between 19th and 20th Streets. And it's free!
