READ ALOUD TO CAUSE TROUBLE brings together a gaggle of wobbly-kneed armchair revolutionaries who don’t vote to celebrate the release of IMPROPRIA PERSONA, a collaborative chapbook by Kay Gabriel and David W. Pritchard (Damask Press, 2017) with an evening of poems and provocations.
KAY GABRIEL is the author of Elegy Department Spring (BOAAT Press, forthcoming) and, with David W. Pritchard, Impropria Persona. She is aufgehoben or bust, baby.
DAVID W. PRITCHARD is a poet and a scholar, though he is not a poet-scholar. He is the author, with Kay Gabriel, of Impropria Persona. He is currently working on a super-poem entitled REVOLUTION OR DECADENCE for which he has been paid 50 cents by an anonymous donor. In this way he is the last living residue of literary patronage.
A.B. ROBINSON has been called a Surrealist in both condemnation and praise. She is not a Surrealist.
CAM SCOTT is a poet, critic, and practicing non-musician from Winnipeg, Canada, Treaty One territory. He performs under the name Cold-catcher and as always, the motivating question is For whom?
ZACHARY LAMALFA was recently described as a poet whom one could easily imagine enjoying a career as a civil engineer or architect, which made everyone else in the room laugh very hard. He is one thing about the city.
