Nada will read accompanied by virtuoso oud player, Dick Barsamian.
Adeena Karasick and Marianne Shaneen make cameo appearances as “The Bagelman Sisters.”
Drew Gardner on V. Imp: “Established art wisdom meets up with punk response.
.Fearlessly hilarious…. Slabs of lysergic showtune gone lit-crit…. A fusion of frustrated energies and zany energies which operate as a kind of virtual liberation of same.”
Ann Lauterbach’s seventh poetry collection, Hum, was published in 2005, along with The Night Sky: Writings on the Poetics of Experience. The recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship, she teaches at Bard College.
Tim Peterson on Ann Lauterbach: “Ann Lauterbach is one of the most intriguing and challenging poets writing today. Manipulating the dimensions of space-time in language, violently and continuously arriving in the present, she displays a dedication to complexity which is elusive.”
