Molotov Editions Press presents a table reading of scenes from its new release, the play The Death of Teddy Ballgame by Robert Mailer Anderson, bestselling author of the novel Boonville. With jazz improvisation from SFJAZZ Collective, and special guest readers Les Claypool (Primus), Jonathan Moscone, and Domenic Stansberry. Bourbon, wine, and coffee available. FREE
