Saturday, September 11, 8:00 p.m.
Carol Mirakove and Selah Saterstrom
@ Ruthless Grip
We hope you can join us on Saturday, September 11 at 7:30 p.m. at Washington Printmakers Gallery (1732 Connecticut Ave. second floor, between R and S Streets, several blocks north of the Dupont Circle Q Street Metro exit) for the first reading of the fall season in the Ruthless Grip Poetry Series, featuring poet CAROL MIRAKOVE and fiction writer SELAH SATERSTROM.

CAROL MIRAKOVE is the author of Occupied (Kelsey St. Press, 2004), temporary tattoos (BabySelf Press, 2002), and Wall (ixnay, 1999). She is currently working on a manuscript titled Mediated. Mirakove is included on the Narrow House CD Women in the Avant Garde, released earlier this year. Presently residing in Brooklyn, she lived in the DC metro area for 5 years, and received her MFA from George Mason University in 1999.

SELAH SATERSTROM's work has appeared in a variety of independent publications, most recently Tarpaulin Sky, Monkey Puzzle, 3rd Bed, and in the Seattle Research Institute's anthology Experimental Theology. Her novel The Pink Institution (Coffee House Press) was published last spring. She teaches writing and art at Warren Wilson College in North Carolina and is currently working on a novel and a text/image collaboration exploring the limits of the book. Andrew Ervin writes of her first novel that "The Pink Institution adheres to a logic all its own. Saterstrom has stripped away every convention of Dixie fiction and replaced them with a series of discrete, crystalline liberates the reader from the rules that typically define how a novel functions."

We hope to see you there and for all festivities afterwards.
