The sMarch weather isn’t so lousy, and neither are the literary events

You (and I) may have missed InKY, and Speak Social may be taking the month off, but you need not despair, there are still a few literary events still going on in and around Louisville. They will, obviously, not coincide (where avoidable) with the NCAA schedule.

TOMORROW, March 13th at 9pm. Join Rachel Short and crew in Decca’s swank stone cellar/lounge for Subterranean Phrases! This month’s reader is Thomas Olges, local teacher, poet, satirist and fiction writer. I personally guarantee evocative, weird, uncomfortably poignant satire/thematic out of this guy. He’ll be accompanied by Ryan Conroy on various instruments.

March 21. Render After Party: A Benefit for Holler Poets Series (will follow Rebecca Gayle Howell’s official release of “Render / An Apocolypse” winner of the 2012 Cleveland State University First Book Prize, selected and with a foreword by Nick Flynn, at the Carnegie Center for Literacy)
Music by Matt Duncan with guest appearances from Katerina Stoykova- Klemer, Eric Scott Sutherland, Maurice Manning, and Marianne Worthington. 9:00 p.m. | Al’s Bar, 601 North Limestone Street $5 cover & donations accepted to benefit The Holler Poets Series.

March 27th, Holler returns for its 58th installment. Tina Andry (celebrating the release of Ransom Notes from Accents Publishing), and Jeremy Paden (celebrating the release of Broken Tulips, also from Accents) will read; Chris Sullivan will play some Tunes. As always, Holler gets loud at Al’s Bar in Lexington.

Stone Soup didn’t want to compete with chocolate…I mean Jesus…so there will be no Stone Soup for Easter. In April, Jimmy will welcome Divinity Rose, Norman Buzz Minnick, and Jay Sizemore.

There are also several author signings and readings at Carmichael’s Bookstore, which I will “share” on FB.

Enjoy the Madness and the (slowly improving) weather!
