From the mailing list announcement from Sherrie Flick:
“The February Gist Street is on SATURDAY, February 14th. That’s right–a Valentine’s Gist. Come with your honey, come stag–but please do come to hear Anthony McCann and Matt Rohrer read their poetry.
“Both in from Brooklyn for the occasion, these guys have promised love poems and other poems–love, angst, ennui. How could you pass that up?
“Anthony’s first book, Father of Noise out with Fence Press has been getting praises far and wide. Matt Rohrer, co-founder of Fence Press and author of Satellite (Verse Press) is, in fact, one of the best things since sliced bread. Looking for a romantic gesture? There will
be books for sale.
“There will be (unsliced) homemade bread and ice cream, and several heart shaped cakes and cookies. Please do bring your choice ‘food of love’ to the festivities. BYOB. Socializing begins at 7:30. Readings begin at 8:00. Please COME EARLY if you’d like a seat. Raffle. Friendliness. Acceptance.
“305 Gist Street, James Simon’s Sculpture studio, Uptown–Pittsburgh. 412-434-5629 if you’re lost. $3 suggested donation also gets you in on the raffle. www.giststreet.org”
