March 20th Readings

The March installment of the 510 Readings was a blast! But you knew that, because you were there:

Baltimore author/poet Ashlie Kauffman began the evening by reading an excerpt of her novel-in-progress.

Jamie Iredell, who visited from Atlanta, followed, reading from Prose. Poems. A Novel (Orange Alert Pres), an innovative hybride of the aforementioned, and also a bit from his forthcoming book, The Book of Freaks (Future Tense).

After the break, Baltimore's own Todd Whaley read a story about schizophrenia and riddles entitled "What Am I?"

Finally, Molly Gaudry, down from Philadelphia, closed the show by reading from her prose-poem novella, We Take Me Apart, a Stein-like play of images and words.

Come visit us April 17th at the central branch of the Enoch Pratt Library during the CityLit Festival, where we'll welcome Sam Lipsyte, Dawn Raffel, Geoffrey Becker, and Andy Devine.
