Cheryl’s Gone This Thurs: Berrigan, Bernstein, Gaughran-Perez, and Reinfeld

Join us this Thurs at 8 PM @ Big Bear Cafe (1st & R NW)

David Berrigan will be presenting Spanish and homophonic (I think?) translations of Ted Berrigan’s Sonnets.

Jamie Gaughran-Perez will be dispensing free knuckle-sandwiches. More on Jamie:

Jamie is co-director of Narrow House, a Baltimore-based small press and literary arts organization, along with Lauren Bender and Justin Sirois. He spends his days in D.C. as a creative director and strategist for Threespot. And you can also find him playing bass in Sweatpants (the band, not the article of clothing). His work has been published in various places in print and online. He eats a lot more than you’d expect.

Arielle Bernstein will teach squares how to have a good time. Here are her qualifications:Arielle Bernstein is a writer living in Washington, DC, She received her BA in Philosophy and English Literature from Brandeis University and received her MFA in Creative Writing from American University. Her thesis was a collection of short stories and essays, entitled, Love and Hunger.

Finally, Greg Reinfeld will be striking the strings of a steel-stringed instrument with one hand at regular intervals of time while the other hand presses down on the strings at the other end of the instrument. Sounds will also move from his diaphragm, up his throat, and out of his mouth.
