Green Lantern Press Reading
Stephanie Brooks: Love Is a Certain Kind of Flower
Ashley Murray: Fascia
Terri Griffith: So Much Better

Brooks’ chapbook features an extensive index of Love-metaphors used in dime store love poetry collections. Deconstructing Romance, she provides an amusing and sometimes poignant reference of emotive descriptions. Fascia, a short story collection, is a series of Southern vignettes, featuring characters from the silent-movie starlet to the high school prom queen. Terri Griffith’s writing has been featured in several anthologies, including Without a Net: The Female Experience of Growing Up Working Class. Her debut novel describes the inner life of a credit union worker as her life slowly unravels.
