Reading: FC2 + Big Other + More
Thursday, June 17, 2010
7:00pm – 9:00pm
2542 W. Chicago Ave.
Come hear, see, feel, smell, etc, FC2 authors, Big Other contributors and others in this badass lineup:
Rob Stephenson’s Passes Through is just out from FC2. He is an intermedia artist living in Queens, NY.
Cris Mazza writes. Some say too much.
Davis Schneiderman’s recent and forthcoming works include the novels Drain, Blank: a novel (Jaded Ibis), and The Exquisite Corpse: Chance and Collaboration in Surrealism’s Parlor Game (Nebraska). He is Director of Lake Forest College Press/&NOW Books, where he edits The &NOW AWARDS: The Best Innovative Writing series.
Kathleen Rooney is a poet and a writer. With Abby Beckel, she is a founding editor of Rose Metal Press. With Elisa Gabbert, she is the author of That Tiny Insane Voluptuousness (Otoliths, 2008). With Counterpoint Press, her prose collection For You, For You I Am Trilling These Songs is now available. With her husband, the writer Martin Seay, she lives in Chicago.
Jac Jemc’s chapbook, This Stranger She’d Invited In, is coming out this year from Greying Ghost press, and her first novel, My Only Wife, is forthcoming from Dzanc Books in 2012. She is the poetry editor of decomP, a fiction reader for Our Stories and a bookstore liaison for Tarpaulin Sky. She blogs her rejections in “The Rejection Collection.”
Tim Jones-Yelvington’s work has appeared or is forthcoming in Another Chicago Magazine, Sleepingfish, Annalemma and others. His short fiction chapbook, “Evan’s House and the Other Boys who Live There” is forthcoming in Spring 2011 in “They Could No Longer Contain Themselves,” a multiauthor volume from Rose Metal Press. With Megan Milks, he co-hosts “Uncalled for Readings,” Chicago’s “mostly Queer, mostly prose” reading series. He is guest editing Pank Magazine in October as a Queer poetry and prose issue.
A D Jameson is a writer, video artist, teacher, and performer. He is the author of the novel “Giant Slugs” (Lawrence and Gibson) and the story collection “Amazing Adult Fantasy,” both forthcoming later in 2010.
This reading/performance/experience will be the opposite of boring. We will see you there.
