I Found it at the Movies Contributors Reading from their Latest Solo Works this Saturday

Catherine Graham, Jim Johnstone, Jason Guriel, and Dilys Leman will be reading from their latest publications August 9th. The reading will take place at 258 Indian Road, just north of Howard Park Ave. Doors open at 2:00 pm, with the reading starting at 3:00.

Although the focus of the reading will be on their latest solo projects, I Found it at the Movies will be available for purchase at the book table.

10247468_10152515092762018_9152210772655703199_nI Found It at the Movies includes poems inspired by the full range of cinematic history – from silent films to blockbusters, from neo-realism to cartoon, from Fred Astaire to vampires, and from all around the world. I Found it at the Movies includes Catherine Graham’s poem “The Buried,” which fills in the lines of Academy Award winner Tilda Swinton’s burial wish. Jim Johnstone, whose poetry collection The Velocity of Escape was published by Guernica in 2008, wrote the poem “Disgraceland” on Orson Welles’ film The Third Man. And, in I Found it at the Movies, Jason Guriel includes an exploration of the frequently used lighting device, the cukaloris, a panel with irregular holes cut into it and placed in front of a light in order to produce dramatic shadows.

When: 2:00- 5:00 pm, August 9, 2014
Where: The back garden of 258 Indian Road
