Yes, that photo at right is depicting exactly what it appears to – Beth Lisick mowing down her own fans onstage in a leg-wrestling competition at last night's "Litquake Fuck Sports!" event at the Edinburgh Castle. Beth's kind of unbeatable… to this day she still holds the Saratoga High School long jump record. She read a rather uproarious chapter from Helping Me Help Myself about her experience doing preggers yoga at the all-sports-themed literary salon, the Naked Lady Wrestlers played their hard rock covers of Hungarian dance songs, and a tanked-up time was had by all. Other local luminary readings included…

  • Actual National Gymnastics Champion and now-author Jennifer Sey reading from her memoir Chalked Up on the fast times and dysfunctional coaching of high-profile competitive gymnastics.
  • Alan Black reading a hilarious chapter about an awful boyhood barber in Glasgow from Kick the Balls.
  • Bucky Sinister explaining how NASCAR actually is compelling television in .
