Saturday, April 10, 8:00 p.m.
Buck Downs and Brian Kim Stefans
@ Ruthless Grip
We hope you can join us on Saturday, April 10 at 7:30 p.m. at Washington Printmakers Gallery (1732 Connecticut Ave., second floor) for the next reading in the Ruthless Grip Poetry Series, featuring BUCK DOWNS and BRIAN KIM STEFANS.

A native of Ellisville, Mississippi, BUCK DOWNS has been a stable-hand, a bartender, and a beautifier of roadsides under the auspices of the Broward County (Fla.) Dept. of Corrections. He currently works for Columbia Books of Washington DC. A book of poems, marijuana softdrink, was published by EDGE Books in 2000. His poems are mainly distributed in the form of postcards and other postal ephemera, available through free subscription.

BRIAN KIM STEFANS has published several books and chapbooks of poetry, most recently Jai-lai for Autocrats (poems, Portable Press) and Fashionable Noise: On Digital Poetics (Atelos Books), a miscellany of interviews, poems and poetics. His essay on the political blog he created and co-edited, called Circulars, is forthcoming in a book by MIT Press later this year.

To cover gallery costs, Washington Printmakers readings have a $3 cover, which can be waived for anyone for whom it's a real concern.

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