At the library as always y'all.
Saturday, April 11, 2009
3:00pm - 5:00pm
Bushwick Library
Bushwick Avenue @ Seigel Street
Brooklyn, NY


Our fifth reading is around the corner, and it's a multimedia affair featuring work by Chloe Bass, Paul Tunis, Nicolle Elizabeth, and Jordan Scott. Come to the library on Saturday the 11th from 3 to 5PM, and expect a random grab bag of video, audio, and other elements you may be unused to encountering in a library... as well as (more traditionally) poetry, prose, and FULL USE of the chalkboard. HOW CAN YOU AFFORD TO MISS IT? The answer is you cannot.

Also, check out for audio of past readings -- and email us at if you're interested in reading on future dates.
