Rick Alpers’ “Van Tribe” Takes Flight

Last week we took the stage at San Jose’s Cafe Stritch with a fun cast of characters–thanks in part to the generosity of The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, in partnership with the San Jose Downtown Association. In case you missed it, we’ll be rolling out footage from our June 3 performance over the next few weeks, starting today with excerpts of Rick Alpers’ “Van Tribe” saga.

“Van Tribe” is a novel-in-progress that follows a group of people living along San Jose’s Guadalupe River, whose lives are affected by suburban growth. Michael Weiland kicked off the evening with “Van Tribe: The River” and “Dudley and Lisa”:

Tiffany Edwards read the next installment, entitled “Pumpkin”:

Finally, Brian Van Winkle read “Miracle Ticket”:

Like what you see? We’ll be posting more videos over the next few weeks. Thanks again to everyone who made this show possible!
