@ Ruthless Grip
We hope you can join us on Saturday, November 13 at 7:30 p.m. at Washington Printmakers Gallery (1732 Connecticut Ave., second floor, several blocks north of the Dupont Circle Q Street Metro exit) for the next event in the Ruthless Grip Reading Series, an evening featuring three exciting young writers, ADAM GOOD, MAIA GIL'ADI, and JEREMY A. GARDNER.

ADAM GOOD is a recent graduate from American University, where he wrote his senior thesis on the work of Rae Armantrout. He is currently amassing photos of bodies from public signs and warning labels for his project Body Maps. Two of these maps will be appearing in the next issue of The Tangent. Adam's work has also appeared in the journal American Literary and in the group chapbook Unsafe Subjects. Adam teaches SAT preparation to recent Korean immigrants and works as a freelance editor. He lives in Chevy Chase, MD, USA but currently is looking with longing at anywhere-but-here.

MAIA GIL'ADI is a senior English and Creative Writing Major at The George Washington University. She has been published in two issues of the GWU magazine le cult du moi, and also in the magazine "Chewbacca, Hulk Hogan, The Pope, and other Cardboard Cutouts." This year she was the recipient of a student fellowship from the Lannan Foundation for the reading series at the Folger Shakespeare Library. Currently she is working on a poetry collection titled Sleep Apnea, and a collection of short stories titled American Fey, or I'm All Ears.

JEREMY A. GARDNER is the author of the long concrete poem, Up Styx Creek Without a Paddle, the day-poem, Budge (which was adapted to dramatic form and performed by The Washington Free Collaboration in the Fall and Spring of 2003) and the poem-a-day manuscript pop-bomb. He is a senior and English major at The George Washington University and was accepted into the university's English Departmental Honors Program, for which he will write a critical thesis exploring late nineteenth and early twentieth century assaults on American capitalism, including the novels of Upton Sinclair, and the writing and speeches of Eugene Debs. He has received a student fellowship from the Lannan Foundation for the reading series at the Folger Shakespeare Library. He is currently working on a novel entitled "crumb rubber", which chronicles his four summer experience working all over New England as a laborer and machine operator, installing Field Turf, a kind of artificial grass. He has been published in a variety of student publications as well as in the online magazine "Wicked Alice." In the summer of 2004, he collaborated with producer Jason Asdourian to create "Them Isms and their currency," a CD of experimental hip-hop. Assortments of his poetry, fiction, essays, and other works are self-published at:

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