@ Ruthless Grip
We hope you can join us on Saturday, October 11 at 7:30 p.m. at Washington Printmakers Gallery (1732 Connecticut Ave. NW, second floor, several blocks north of the Dupont Circle Q Street Metro exit) for the next reading in the Ruthless Grip Poetry Series, featuring Charles Borkhuis and Cathy Eisenhower.

CHARLES BORKHUIS is a poet, playwright, and essayist living in NYC. His most recent book of poems is entitled Savoir-Fear. Some of his other books include Mouth of Shadows (plays) and Alpha Ruins (poems), selected by Fanny Howe as runner-up for the William Carlos Williams 2001 Book Award. Two of his essays on innovative American poetry were recently published in separate anthologies Telling It Slant and We Who Love to Be Astonished (U. of Alabama Press). His play Phantom Limbs won a Dramalogue Award and Critics Choice in the L.A. Times. His two most recent full-length plays are The Man in The Bowler Hat and Dusk.

CATHY EISENHOWER was born in Youngstown, Ohio, in 1968 and has been writing poetry ever since. Phylum Press published her chapbook, Language of the Dog-heads, in 2001, and she has poems coming out in a Phylum Press anthology published by Coracle Press (due in October some time). Since 2000, she has been translating Argentine poet Diana Bellessi, and recently translated poems by 12 Argentine women poets participating in an exhibit, Buenos Aires: A Tale of Two Cities, open now at University of Delaware.

In order to cover our costs, there is a $3 admission for Ruthless Grip poetry readings.

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