[Southpaw performs at the end of this event, around 8:45 pm.] Dalton author and humorist Owen Egerton (How Best to Avoid Dying) will emcee the evening featuring six writers reading both newly published and yet to be published works. The musical stylings of alt-country band Jenny and the Corn Ponies will kick off the evening, and Southpaw Jones, whose music is at once hilarious and heartbreaking, will bring the festivities to a close. From Dalton Publishing, Ric Williams shares tales from his forthcoming novel Woman in the Tower, and stuntman Gary Kent entertains with his insider’s view on revolutionary Hollywood, reading from the much-anticipated Shadows & Light. Smith Henderson and Amelia Gray, two writers featured in the Spring 2009 issue of American Short Fiction, offer a taste of delectable, unconventional short fiction. And, breathing poetic air into the evening, Josh Morison and Elyse Fenton of Bat City Review deliver lyrical and contemplative poetry.
