Jeremy M. Brownlowe: An Evening of Poetry & Performance

Jeremy M. Brownlowe travels the country under the moniker “Typewriter Troubadour,” composing original pieces of poetry on a manual typewriter for curious pedestrians. This event marks the release of his debut, Angels of the Underground, a collection of rich, raw, and tender poems from an explorer navigating new frontiers of gender identity, sexuality, and human relationship.

Set in New York City, Angels offers Brownlowe’s unique perspective as a trans guy through unflinching portraits of male vulnerability, queerness, addiction, lost love, and modern alienation. With humor, grit, and ease, Brownlowe weaves stories of the neglected subjects of the City, taking notes in poems, which he offers up to us in this compelling collection.

This event will also feature readings by local Philadelphia poets:
Author Cashmere
LindoYes 
Amber Renee
Cynthia Jones
Ari

Cheap Yellow Book Release Party

Shy Watson is stopping by for a reading of her new book, Cheap Yellow! She will be joined by other local poets & will have copies of the book available for sale!

Shy’s poems are abruptly smart, a little violent, devious and ongoing, legendary, mythic, not prosey though a little like the voice of god if god decided to speak more collectively for a while. Shy’s poems to me are so so worth it.
And they are crafty – also like god.
—Eileen Myles, author of Afterglow
