Monday, March 25th at 7:00 pm, Poets Patrick James Dunagan, Derek Fenner and Christina Fisher read poems and engage in repartee. Dunagan’s upcoming booke, Das Gedichtete, may or may not be hot off the Ugly Duckling Presse, in Brooklyn, and if so, may be read from. Regardless, there will be words to be heard, and, to be sure, a slim and extremely limited edition of poems by all three for distribution at the reading, so don’t miss out!

A graduate of the Poetics program at New College of California, Patrick James Dunagan lives in San Francisco and works at Gleeson library for the University of San Francisco. Just bout now or sometime his writings appeared in: 1913, Amerarcana, Big Bridge, Bookslut, House Organ, Lighting’d Press, Newpages, Otoliths, Rain Taxi, Shampoo, and The Volta. His books include Das Gedichtete (Ugly Duckling), There Are People Who Say That Painters Shouldn’t Talk: A GUSTONBOOK (Post Apollo), Her Friends Down at the French Cafe Had No English Words For Me (PUSH), from Chansonniers (Blue Press) and Spirit Guest (Lew Gallery).
