Ear to the Wall: Causey / Gorman / Grammer 3.26.13

Join us to celebrate the work of three local poets & the release of Carrie Causey's chapbook Ear to the Wall, released by Ampersand Books.

Carrie Causey is the author of the chapbook, Ear to the Wall, newly released from Ampersand Books. She has appeared in Plume, Ploughshares, and Sycamore Review and was named First Runner-Up for the 2011 Wabash Prize for Poetry. She is a native of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where she teaches Literature, Composition, and Humanities at Baton Rouge Community College. Currently, she is working on a full-length collection.

Taylor Gorman is an alumnus of LSU’s Creative Writing program and now works for the Baton Rouge library as a troubadour, where he drives to daycares and plays guitar for children and reads them books. He is an also award winning brewer of beer. However, he is most famously known for having written the original lyrics to John Cage’s 4’33, was Time Magazine’s Person of the Year in 2006, is Manti Teo’s current girlfriend, and from 1998 to 2013 was Banksy. Currently he just got accepted into the MFA program at Wichita., which is pretty exciting. Minus maybe "living in Wichita" think but he'll get over it.

Dan Grammer writes fiction about rootlessness, restlessness, and the squaring of personal debts. His poetry deals with language as a translation - an agent of constant miscommunication. Published locally in Dig Magazine, smoking glue gun, and delta, his work is forthcoming in if&when and Plain China.

This event is FREE and open to public. The reading begins at 8 PM at Boudreaux & Thibodeaux's bar, 214 3rd St. in Baton Rouge, LA.
