Join us at the fabulous Nunu Chocolates Cafe & Tap Room in Park Slope, Brooklyn, for a night of stellar readings by Amy Saul-Zerby, James Anthony Tropeano, A. Razor, and Puma Perl. Music by T. B. D.
Donations will be kindly requested, though no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
Amy Saul-Zerby is managing editor of VoicemailPoems.org. She is settled (for now) in Philadelphia, where she is also working on her first collection of poetry, forthcoming from Punk Hostage Press. Her writing has been featured in The YOLO Pages, Painted Bride Quarterly, and TheNewerYork. Find her online at amysaulzerby.com.
James Anthony Tropeano III is a Brooklyn-based actor and writer. His latest film forever into space is currently playing in several film festivals around the United States and South America. He is the author of the seminal novel Gutterfish and will be releasing Red Hook Giraffe and Other Stories on Punk Hostage Press later this year.
A. Razor co-founded Punk Hostage Press and Words As Works with Iris Berry in 2012. He attempts to make sense of this world through a literary community he has participated in worldwide since 1980. His writing reflects a life spent on the run, imprisoned, homeless, making graffiti art, music and creating other media as circumstances permitted. He is an outspoken social justice advocate for many causes and believes in healing trauma through literary process and therapy.
Puma Perl is a widely published poet and writer; she is also a journalist who writes an arts and cultural column for the Villager/Chelsea Now. Puma is the author of two chapbooks, the award-winning Belinda and Her Friends and Ruby True, and two full-length collections, knuckle tattoos and Retrograde. She also produces Puma Perl’s Pandemonium, which launched at the Bowery Electric in 2012 and brings poetry together with rock and roll. She performs regularly with a number of excellent musicians and continues to curate shows. Her photographs of artists, poets, and musicians are frequently used for album covers, fliers, and headshots, and have been published in literary journals and newspapers. She is a lifelong New York City resident and lives on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. For more information, see www.pumaperl.blogspot.com
