Come join Sonora Review on Wednesday, July 13 for the kickoff event of their first ever Community Reading Series. This event is FREE and open to the public and features three local authors who will read from their work of poetry and nonfiction, with musical performances to follow by Bass Tax and Havarti Orchestra:
Jamison Crabtree serves on the POG board of directors and edits poetry for SporkPress. His work appears in LIT, Handsome, Hayden’s Ferry Review, PANK, Makeout Creek, kill author, and many other wonderful places.
Daisy Pitkin grew up in rural Ohio with her three brothers. For the last 10 years, she has worked as a rebel rouser, campaign director, contract negotiator, and campaign writer supporting the organizing efforts of garment and industrial laundry workers around the world. She mainly writes nonfiction.
Joshua Marie Wilkinson’s recent works are Selenography, with Polaroids by Tim Rutili (Sidebrow Books 2010); Made a Machine by Describing the Landscape, a film about Califone (IndiePix Films 2011), and Poets on Teaching (University of Iowa Press 2010). His next book, Swamp Isthmus, is forthcoming from Black Ocean (2013). He teaches in the MFA program at the University of Arizona.
Tucson’s own Brass Tax and Havarti Orchestra will provide music after the reading. Both bands create a unique style of music with an unconventional setup and instrumentation.
Sonora Review, edited and produced by University of Arizona Creative Writing graduate students, is a nationally distributed biannual literary journal publishing prose and poetry from both established and emerging writers. Founded in 1980, it is one of the oldest student-run literary journals in the country.
