Logical Awesome: A Chapbook Release Party, June 19

We are teaming up with Flying Guillotine Press to present reading from Sampson Starkweather's The Heart Is Green From So Much Waiting and Steven Karl's (Ir)Rational Animals (published by Flying Guillotine). Both chapbooks will be available for purchase! (As well as a super-limited number of copies of Matt Bollinger's Passion).

The awesome starts on Saturday 6/19 at 3pm at the Four Faced Liar (165 West 4th street; take any number of subways to the W4 Street Station). It's the afternoon--come over, have some beers, listen to some poetry, buy some books, and still you'll have time to get ready for your hot date or dangerous rooftop dance party.

Steven Karl received his MFA from The New School and is the author of a collaborative chapbook, State(s) of Flux, with the artist Joseph Lappie (Peptic Robot Press, 2009) and (Ir)Rational Animals (Flying Guillotine Press) and Saturday(s) (Scantily Clad Press). He frequently writes reviews for Cold Front Magazine, Galatea Resurrects, and Sink Review. He lives in New York City. His blog is http://stevenkarl.blogspot.com.

Sampson Starkweather is the author of four chapbooks, most recently The Heart Is Green From So Much Waiting from Immaculate Disciples Press, and Self Help Poems, forthcoming from Greying Ghost Press. He is an editor of physics and chemistry books, and co-founder of Birds, LLC, an independent poetry press.

Seriously, do this...

Sweet Press Coverage

"If we're playing along at home, The Heart is Green From So Much Waiting feels like some kind of gameshow hosted by a monk." - Mike Young



"What does it mean to turn green? I can't help but think of Superman and his kryptonite, but I'm sure some nerd would mention Green Lantern, and some other references I was too busy playing "Barbie Whorehouse" to pick up on..." - Amy Lawless



Mike, Amy: You is both good peeps.
