Flatmancrooked Poets Read at the John Natsoulas Gallery on April 22nd at 8 P.M.

The Poetry Night Reading Series is proud to present readings from two anthologies from the Sacramento publishing house Flatmancrooked: The Slim Anthology of Contemporary Poetics – 2010, and the fiction anthology Not About Vampires. This event will take place on Thursday, April 22nd at 8 P.M. The performance will be held at the John Natsoulas Gallery at 521 1st Street. The first 100 guests will receive a free drink, with more free drinks with the purchase of any Flatmancrooked books.

Flatmancrooked is a full-service, independent online and print publishing house established by Elijah Jenkins and James Kaelan in 2008. Since then, they have held readings and other events on both coasts and at numerous universities, partnered on various ventures with the likes of McSweeney’s, Opium, AWP, and SxSW, and published three print books and two anthologies, with many more yet to be released in 2010 and beyond. Andy Duga, N.A. Jong, and Kevin Walsh, recipient of the 2009 Flatmancrooked Fiction Prize, will be reading their work from 2010’s Not About Vampires: An Anthology of New Fiction Concerning Everything Else. Poets Julia Halprin Jackson, Shideh Etaat, Whitey Erickson, and Poetry Night’s own Andy Jones will be reading from the Slim Anthology of Contemporary Poetics – 2010, due to be published in Fall 2010.
