Saturday, February 8, 8:00 p.m.
Dan Gutstein and Katy Lederer
@ Ruthless Grip
We hope you can join us Saturday, February 8 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 KATY LEDERER and DAN GUTSTEIN.

KATY LEDERER was educated at the University of California at Berkeley and the Iowa Writers' Workshop, where she was an Iowa Arts Fellow. Her poems have appeared or are forthcoming in Body Electric: America's Best Poetry from the American Poetry Review (Norton), The Verse Book of New American Poets (Slope), Great American Prose Poems: From Poe to the Present (Scribners), and Pleased to See Me (Bloodaxe), among other publications. Her full-length collection is entitled Winter Sex (Verse Press, 2002). She is also the author of Poker Face, a memoir.

Dan Gutstein's poems and short-short fictions have appeared in dozens of magazines and anthologies. George Washington University has employed him, over the past few years, as both a lecturer in creative writing and a "learning specialist" who works with disabled students -- but all that's about to change. "The Man ain't gonna be makin' no more money off my back," he says. Dan promises to read several poems about murder, and may read from A CRAFT AND EDGE PRIMER.
