May Line Up Announced!!!

Hey folks,

So now everything is official. Our next reading is scheduled for Saturday MAy 31st and will feature FRANK SHERLOCK, YEW LEONG LEE & BRANDON HOLMQUEST. It will be held at Kenny's (157 Bleecker Street) at 3:30 PM. Check out some of the stellar bios below:

FRANK SHERLOCK is the co-author of the newly released Ready-to-Eat Individual with Brett Evans. Publisher Bill Lavender says, "In New Orleans, USA, during the Year 1 A.K. (After Katrina), Frank Sherlock & Brett Evans sifted through the ration fossils to put words where the food used to be. The latest development resulted in a poem that is a State-of-the-City and post-apocalyptic journal, sealed by a retort pouch and blocked from future contamination. The resulting taste and texture are much more realistic and natural than those normal dehydrated and freeze dried histories."

YEW LEONG LEE is a Singaporean writer currently living in the States. He has an MFA in Creative Writing from the New School. His novella, "Gross Domestic Happiness," won the 2003 James Assatly Memorial Prize for Fiction at Brown University. His nonfiction has appeared in the Lives column of The New York Times Magazine, his fiction in the Spring 2008 issue of H.O.W. Journal and Chaise Magazine, and his poetry in Journeys: Words, Home, and Nation: An anthology of Singapore Poetry.

BRANDON HOLMQUEST is the editor of the literary translations journal Calque. He lives in New York City.
