On Sunday July 8, 2012, at 7pm, THE JUBILANT THICKET LITERARY SERIES features prose by Jaime Fountaine & poetry by Kari Larsen, Michelle Naka Pierce & Chris Pusateri.
JAIME FOUNTAINE lives and writes in Philadelphia, where she is often found politely discussing her age and valid state-issued identification with the clerks at the liquor store.
KARI LARSEN is the author of Say you're a fiction (Dancing Girl), the Black Telephone (Unthinkable Creatures), and Come as Your Madness (Birds of Lace). More information on these and other projects can be found at www.cold-rubies.com.
MICHELLE NAKA PIERCE was born in Japan. She is the author of seven titles, including She, A Blueprint (BlazeVOX, 2011) with art by Sue Hammond West and Symptom of Color (Dusie, 2011). Awarded the Poets Out Loud Editor's Prize, Continuous Frieze Bordering Red (Fordham UP, forthcoming 2012) documents the migratory patterns of the hybrid as she travels the floating borders in Rothko's Seagram murals. Pierce is associate professor and director of the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics at Naropa University in Boulder, CO.
CHRIS PUSATERI is the author of several books of poetry, including Common Time (Steerage Press, 2012), Molecularity (Dusie, 2011), Anon (BlazeVox, 2008) and North of There (Dusie, 2007). His poetry and critical prose has appeared in many periodicals, including American Letters & Commentary, Boston Review, Chicago Review, Denver Quarterly, Fence, Jacket, Verse and many others. A librarian by trade, he works in Denver, where he reviews new poetry and fiction titles for Library Journal and curates the Belmar Film Series, a free film program that showcases independent and foreign-language cinema.
This all happens at The Moonstone Arts Center, 110A South 13th Street, Philadelphia, PA. Will be wonderful! Hope to see you there.
