Hi everyone!!

(Q) If April showers bring May flowers, what does February snow bring to March?
(A) The Southern Writers Reading Series, of course!

date: March 10th
time: 7:30PM
venue: Happy Ending Lounge, 302 Broome Street between Forsyth & Eldridge

Please come out to hear the vivacious and talented: Linsday Turner, Peyton Burgess, Sativa January, Shane Manieri and Steve Roberts

Lindsay Turner grew up in Kingsport, Tennessee. She graduated from Harvard College with a degree in English and has since received a Masters degree in film studies from the Université Paris III Sorbonne РNouvelle, where she also taught. Her poems and criticism have appeared or are forthcoming in Meridian, VERSE online, The Boston Review, Drunken Boat, and elsewhere. She is currently an MFA candidate at NYU, and she lives in Brooklyn.

Peyton Burgess was born in Richmond, Virginia, but was supposed to be born in New Orleans.

Sativa January is from Austin, Texas. Her work has been published in Joyland and in the International Journal for Transitional Justice. She’s a recent finalist for Glimmer Train’s Short Story Award for New Writers and is Co Fiction Editor at The Washington Square Review. This year, Sativa is an NYU Iraq Veterans Writing Fellow. She’s working on a book of short stories and a novel based on her experiences as video producer for a war crimes tribunal in West Africa.

Shane Manieri, born in New Orleans, Louisiana, writes about growing up in the bayou state, its outcasts and its “who dats.” His mother, a genteel Southerner, was passive aggressive. His father, a preacher, obsessed with sex and religion, was at turns distant and adulterous. Although Shane spent much of his adult life in New York City, his work focuses on the Southern experience.

Steve Roberts is from Dallas, Texas. Not a suburb of Dallas, but actually from within city limits! He writes a little bit of everything, but for tonight, poetry. He is the co-curator with Lauren Ireland of the Reading at Chrystie St, and co-chairs the upcoming Invisible Magazine with Lauren as well. He believes Texans are the best people on Earth. P.S. George W. Bush is not a Texan.
