We are thrilled to be hosting Bay Area poets Alli Warren and Brandon Brown at our first Agitprop reading of the season on Saturday, October 6 at 7pm.
Alli Warren is the author of Grindin (Lew Gallery), Acting Out (Editions Louis Wain), Well-Meaning White Girl (Mitzvah Chaps), and Cousins (Lame House Press). With Michael Nicoloff, she wrote Eunoia (Abraham Lincoln) and Bruised Dick. In 2013, City Lights will publish her first book. Recent writing appears in Lana Turner Journal, Where Eagles Dare, and Saginaw. From 2008 through 2010, she co-curated The (New) Reading Series at 21 Grand. She co-edits the Poetic Labor Project, and lives in Oakland.
Brandon Brown’s first two books were published in 2011, The Persians By Aeschylus (Displaced Press) and The Poems of Gaius Valerius Catullus (Krupskaya.) Poems and prose have recently appeared in Sprung Formal, Postmodern Culture, BPM, Model Homes, and Art Practical. In 2012, his debut play Charles Baudelaire the Vampire Slayer was staged at Small Press Traffic’s Poet’s Theater. His third book, Flowering Mall, is forthcoming from Roof in the fall of 2012.
There is no cover charge for reading, but libations and donations to the gallery are always welcome. We hope to see you there and for festivities before and after.
