Lit lovers are in for a treat this Saturday, April 2, at Denver’s BookBar.
Three wonderful Colorado-Conundrum authors will read from their works at the 4280 Tennyson Street bookshop/wine bar. Attendance is free and open to everyone.
Chris Ransick will get things started with readings from his poetry at 5:30 p.m. (with a social hour beginning an hour before he takes the stage). His reading is part of BookBar’s First Saturday Poetry Series, featuring none other than Denver’s past poet laureate.
After a brief interlude, Conundrum authors Teow Lim Goh and Robert Garner McBrearty will read from their works beginning at 7 p.m. and ending at 9 p.m. Their reading kicks off the second (and final) act of BookBar’s slate of Conundrum authors for the night. She will read from her work, Islanders, which will be published by us on May 16. Pre-ordering is now available. Robert will read from his work, The Western Lonesome Society.
These works are available for purchase and pre-order (for Islanders) on our website.
Chris Ransick is the author of five books: Language for the Living and the Dead; Never Summer, Poems from Thin Air (Winner of the Colorado Book Award); A Return to Emptiness (Colorado Book Award finalist); Lost Songs & Last Chances; and Asleep Beneath the Hill of Dreams.
Teow Lim Goh’s poetry, essays, and criticism have appeared in PANK, The Toast, Guernica, The Rumpus, and Open Letters Monthly, among other publications. She lives in Denver and dreams of the sea. This is her first book.
Robert Garner McBrearty’s stories have been anthologized in the Pushcart Prize collection and widely published in literary journals that include the North American Review, Missouri Review, New England Review, Narrative Magazine, StoryQuarterly, and Mississippi Review. He is the author of two other story collections, Let the Birds Drink in Peace and A Night at the Y.
Hope to see you there!
