Dear gold strips. Dear pretty dents. Dear surprise plates.
Zachary Schomburg and Jenny Zhang, two poets that scribble on mountain backs and chins, are on a hearty America tour right now. They are stopping here in Minneapolis to swing their words open for us. We would like you to come hear them and feel your breath become tangled or dotted lines.
The reading will be at Harriet Brewing, a new and wonderous place in the Seward neighborhood where excellent (and local!) Harriet microbrews grow into mouth art. Laura from Hymie’s Record Roadshow will also be in the house to cruise records in circles before and after the reading.
ZACHARY SCHOMBURG is the author of Fjords vol. 1 (Black Ocean 2012), Scary, No Scary (Black Ocean 2009), and The Man Suit (Black Ocean 2007). He also does Octopus Books. He lives in Portland, OR, where he co-curates the Bad Blood Reading Series.
When: Wednesday, September 19 at 7pm.
Where: The Harriet Brewery Tap Room — 3036 Minnehaha Avenue Minneapolis, MN 55406
Why: poetry readings shouldn’t be boring!
