We hope you'll join us this Sunday, February 20 at 3pm for the monthly In Your Ear poetry reading at the District of Columbia Arts Center. This Sunday we are pleased to host BRENDA IIJIMA, JUSTIN SIROIS and ANDREW MILLER.
Brenda Iijima is the author of AROUND SEA (O Books, 2004). Furniture Press recently published EARLY LINOLEUM. Out of a Federalist-style building in Brooklyn, she publishes Portable Press at Yo-Yo Labs titles (with an emphasis on anarchism). Two completed manuscripts that address environmental crisis are her ECO QUARRY BELLWETHER and ANIMATE & INANIMATE AIMS.
Justin Sirois is founder and creative director of Narrow House Recordings. His poems can be seen on or in Poets Against the War, Newtopia magazine, and several chapbooks by New Lights Press. His series of photos taken in Las Vegas on the first anniversary of 9-11 can be seen on Trifecta Press' website and in the liner notes of his CD. Justin uses his experiences as a social security employee and night club promoter in his writing about politics, film, dinosaurs, and the plight of late capitalism. He is the web site administrator for Black Square Editions and lives in Baltimore.
Andrew Miller has been collaborating with the Mobtown Writers' Collective and The Portable Reading Series of Baltimore for the past two years. His work displays a critical distaste for the banality of consumer culture as well as for political and social injustices, but also celebrates the (not so small) victories of the individual. He is the tuning fork and magnetic tape stretcher bearer for Narrow House Recordings.
