On this episode of Talking Paper, Christian Niedan speaks with writer and artist Dallas Athent about her new book of poetry, Theia Mania, out now from AntiSentiMental Society. In addition to her own poetic work, Athent volunteers her time promoting the work of other writers by coordinating east coast reading events (along with myself) for Nomadic Press.
He also recorded readings from the launch event for Theia Mania, which took place on April 30th 2017 at the Jersey City studio of its artist, Maria Pavlovska, and featured live readings by Athent, writer/editor Chris Campanioni, AntiSentiMental Society editor Ronna Lebo, writer/filmmaker Prospero Vega, and culture chronicler Anthony Haden-Guest.
Campanioni reads a portion of The Real Thing (#AlternativeFacts)
Lebo reads 9 Steps to Achieve Full Deniability
Vega reads A Chinese Woman in the Rain
Anthony Haden-Guest reads Newscast
