Reading this Sunday

This Sunday, at 2 p.m., Jennifer Karmin and Andy Gricevich will give a poetry reading at Avol's Bookstore. It will be a blast.

Jennifer Karmin is the author of the text-sound epic Aaaaaaaaaaalice (Flim Forum Press, forthcoming 2009). She curates the Red Rover Series and is a founding member of the public art group Anti Gravity Surprise. Her multidisciplinary projects have been presented nationally at festivals, artist-run spaces, and on city streets. Jennifer teaches creative writing to immigrants at Truman College and works as a Poet in Residence for the Chicago Public Schools. Recent poems are published in the journals Cannot Exist, MoonLit, Otoliths, and anthologized in Come Together: Imagine Peace (Bottom Dog Press), Not A Muse (Haven Books), and The City Visible: Chicago Poetry for the New Century (Cracked Slab Books).

Andy Gricevich is uncomfortably writing this in the third person. He's a poet, actor, theater director and musician whose work occasionally finds the time to get itself published here and there. He spent much of the last four years melding political theater and experimental music with the Nonsense Company, and performing satirical cabaret songs with the Prince Myshkins. Andy edits Cannot Exist, a print poetry magazine put lovingly together in his living room in Madison, Wisconsin. He very rarely, and with extensive discomfort, blogs at ndgwriting.blogspot.com.
