SUNDAY, JUNE 12, 2011, 5PM

On Sunday, June 12th, 2011, at 5pm, The Jubilant Thicket Literary Series presents a celebration of (Soma)tics, featuring a reading & discussion by CAConrad, and films by Courtney Shumway.

CACONRAD is the son of white trash asphyxiation.  His childhood included selling cut flowers along the highway for his mother & helping her shoplift.

COURTNEY SHUMWAY is a series of movements contained within a female body centered out of nowhere & existing forever tomorrow beside you.  They were hungry so she fed them.  8.  All at once.  She is least relevant in the early morning & highly significant at any other time of day, unless the sun is up.  She has gone mad with your waiting & fills herself with things untold.  In spite of knowing better, she speaks constantly, resulting in her continued presence & frequent misgivings.  She is deeply honored to bear, among other tragedies, the affliction of poet.

This will be an amazing day in the history of the world & poetry.  Please come.  This happens, as ever, at The Walking Fish Theatre, 2509 Frankford Avenue, Philadelphia, PA, at 5pm EST.
