Reading sponsored by BrickHouse Books, Inc., with a lot of help from Poetry Editor Doritt Carroll

Join us for a reading by Dan Vera and Cort Bledsoe, two of the most admired poets in the Baltimore Washington area, on April 16th. Dan Vera’s writing offers sharp observations in a wry voice in his latest book Speaking Wiri Wiri. His comments about growing up Cuban-American and a member of the LGBT community have been described as “clear, smart, honest, and funny” by reviewer Martin Espada. Cort Bledsoe writes movingly in Riceland of his childhood on a rice and catfish farm in Arkansas. Jo McDougall has described the poems in Riceland as “startlingly revealing.” Both poets will read at the Mark Cottman Gallery, located at 1014 S. Charles St. Baltimore, MD 21230 on April 16th at 6:30 pm.
