Adrian Zuniga is creator and MC of the literary death match – where the stage becomes an arena, author readings are battles, and the warring wordsmiths are judged by a panel of peers. Adrian has held literary death matches all over the country and on Friday night, the games begin at the Brattleboro book festival.
