Poetry Reading

Tuesday, October 11 · 7:30pm - 10:30pm
850 NE 81st Ave. (Entrance on Oregon St.)

Join us for an evening of poetry and prose at

Eat.Art.Theater, Milepost 5’s fine cafĂ© and performance venue.

Featured readers will be Ralph Salisbury, Brittney Corrigan and Jay Thiemeyer.

Ralph Salisbury's thirteen books evoke his

English-American  heritage. "In the Children's Museum in Nashville" was published in the New Yorker, in 1960, and has attracted some attention as a precursor to the contemporary Native American literary movement. Rainbows of Stone was a 2000 Oregon Book Award finalist, and his 2009 Light from a Bullet Hole was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize.

Brittney Corrigan’s poems have appeared in The Texas Observer,

Hayden’s Ferry Review, orderlands, The Blue Mesa Review, Oregon
Review, Manzanita Quarterly, and Hip Mama, among others. She is the
poetry editor for the online literary journal Hyperlexia. To read more
of Brittney’s work, visit her website at http://brittneycorrigan.com/.

Jay Thiemeyer is the author of Marginal Notes. Jay has been a

long-time homeless advocate and co-host to KBOO radio’s My Buckets Got
a Hole In It. His poems have appeared in Burnside Cadillac, Street
Roots, and The Portland Alliance. He will be freshly back from
Mondragon Spain and hopes to have some pieces based on his experience

The Habit of Rainy Nights Press will announce its 2012 publishing
selections tonight.

Stay for open mic. Bring something to read.
Come early to sign up and enjoy a bite or brew from Eat.Art.Theater.
