Erik Thursson was born to a single mother living in a rural town in New York. He never knew his father, but he did know that each one of his siblings had a different father. By the time he could walk, he had moved more times than most of us have moved in our entire lives. He doesn’t remember much, but he does remember eating rotten food. And he does remember trying to kill himself by jumping in front of a car. When he was 7. Erik's passion for literature has been with him at his darkest times, and continues to be present in his daily life. He can be seen in Berkeley selling poems, and spreading love to the Berkeley community.
Paul Kinot is a traveler from Butte, Montana. Paul found his little town to be isolated from the rest of the country, and he wanted to experience more of the world. He left, hitchhiking from Montana to Colorado, from New Hampshire to California. He’s seen the inside of hippie communes and jail cells, and in the process, he’s found God. He wishes to lead a life like Jesus, walking amongst the people, seeing the world, and making art.
