Please join on Sunday, November 16 at 3 p.m. at the DC Arts Center (2438 18th Street in Adams Morgan, just south of Columbia Road on the west side of the street) for a double-trouble slam-bang poetry reading by HEATHER FULLER and ALAN GILBERT.
HEATHER FULLER has a thing for poetry, poetry written in D.C. first and poetry written between Orono, Maine, and Lewisburg, West Virginia, second. She writes it and Rod Smith has been kind enough to put it in two Edge Books books, perhaps this is a rescue fantasy (1997) and Dovecote (2002). A highlight of the past year has been publication in an issue of the Britain-based QUID featuring 3 American poets (Carol Mirakove, Laura Elrick, & Heather) and being part of a CD of readings by poets published in the forthcoming issue of Edinburgh Review. Heather lives in the mountains of Virginia, works in D.C., takes courses in veterinary medicine, and spends a lot of time with feral cats.
ALAN GILBERT's writings on poetry, art, culture, and politics have appeared in a variety of publications, including Bookforum, Boston Review, and XCP: Cross-Cultural Poetics. Poems of his have appeared in The Baffler, First Intensity, and The Tangent. For a living, he edits NYFA Quarterly, an arts and culture magazine published by the New York Foundation for the Arts. He lives in Brooklyn, NY.
