Join us for an evening of poetry, prose and live music.
Rob Benvie has recorded and performed with many musical endeavours, including the rock bands Thrush Hermit, Camouflage Nights and The Dears. Sprawling yet scalpel-sharp, his acclaimed second novel, Maintenance , takes the suburbs to a geography you won’t recognize.
David McGimpsey’s fifth collection of poems, Li'l Bastard , was written in part as an homage to the poetic idols of his youth, John Berryman and Robert Lowell. This collection of “chubby sonnets”—sixteen-line poems organized in eight twenty-poem sequences—explore his obsessions: popular culture, love and death, aging, baseball and beer and Barnaby Jones.
