Nov 10: Toby Altman & Joel Lewis


Readings by
Toby Altman & Joel Lewis

Saturday, November 10th

at Myopic Books
1564 N. Milwaukee Avenue

Toby Altman lives in Chicago with his dog and friends. His poems appear in Gigantic Sequins, The Berkeley Poetry Review and Birdfeast. A chapbook of his prose poems, Asides, was published by Furniture Press. He is cofounder of Damask Press and a member of the Next-Objectivists.

Joel Lewis is the author of Surrender When Leaving Coach (Hanging Loose, 2012) and the forthcoming North River Rundown (Accent Editions 2013). He has edited the selected talks of Ted Berrigan, the selected poems of Walter Lowenfels and an anthology of contemporary New Jersey poets. And, for better or worse, he originated the now-abolished NJ Poet  Laureate position that was such a headache for Amiri  Baraka.

The Myopic Books Reading Series is curated by Larry Sawyer.
