Red Rover Series: A Vulnerable Rumble of Collaborative Reading

rrs.jpgRed Rover Series, an experimental live lit show, is sponsoring a collaborative reading with the theme "Vulnerable Times," to coincide with the MLA Convention's theme for 2014. Readers will present writing (by themselves or others) which bears some mark of vulnerability: forgotten work, work that nearly didn't exist, denied or discouraged work, etc.

This event will feature Amaranth Borsuk, Amy Catanzano, BK Fischer, Chris Glomski, Alan Golding, Rob Halpern, Carla Harryman, Lyn Hejinian, Douglas Kearney, John Keene, Philip Metres, Laura Moriarty, Ladan Osman, Danielle Pafunda, Lily Robert-Foley, Kenyatta Rogers, Jennifer Scappettone, Evie Shockley, Divya Victor, Barrett Watten, Christine Wertheim, Keith Wilson, Ronaldo Wilson, Kate Zambreno, Kazim Ali and Jonathan Stalling. Red Rover series is curated by Laura Goldstein and Jennifer Karmin with special guest Laura Mullen.

The reading will take place on Saturday, Jan.11 at Outer Space Studio, 1474 N. Milwaukee Ave, (third floor walk up, not wheelchair accessible). There's a suggested donation of $4.
