Literary Death Match is what happens when a group of writers attempt to beat each other bloody with wit, onstage for all to see. Founded by Opium Magazine editor and literary Mad Hatter Todd Zuniga, LDM events have now moved into 43 cities around the world, and have involved everything from a Lesbian Spelling Bee showdown to a Hollywood lineup that included Michael C. Hall (of Dexter fame) and Moby. Tonight, the battle goes down at the Contemporary Jewish Museum between an all-star Jewish cast of readers and judges, including Berkeley-based bestselling author Ayelet Waldman (author of Bad Mother), Emmy Award winner Richard Kramer (of My So-Called Life), and writer Jason Turbow (author of The Baseball Codes). May the best wit win.
