July 18th Readings: John Barry, Scott Price, Ivy Goodman, Jamie Gaughran-Perez
Although Artscape held Baltimore in its intoxicating grip this past weekend, some of us were not deterred from July 18th's 510 reaing. They were not disappointed.
John Barry began the evening reading a new piece about life, love, and death at the National Arboretum.
Next, Scott Price followed, dissecting the life (and death) of minor-league baseball players. Here, he reads from his latest book, The Heart of the Game.
After the break, Ivy Goodman read from a work in progress about property lines, bad neighbors, bratty children, and whistling teeth.
Finally, Jamie Gaugran-Perez closed the night with excerpts from his novel in progress, a pastiche of events that circle and ultimately connect to each other.
Thanks for another great reading. See you next month for Tania James, Paula Bomer, Michael Pollock of First City Review, and Jason Tinney.
