Rattle magazine will host the next installment of the 2013 Rattle Reading Series on Sunday, July 7th. Every first , Rattle continues to gather a selection of performers from around the country for a series of poetry readings to celebrate the summer issue.
The series takes a break from the current issue this July and features two poets from past issues: Catherine Freeling, from Berkeley, CA, and Jamey Hecht, from Los Angeles. Freeling was a Finalist for the 2012 Rattle Poetry Prize for her poem “The Robbery,” which appeared in last winter’s issue. Hecht, whose poem “First Divorce” appeared in the Summer 2008 issue, is the author of Limousine, Blue: Fifty Frames from the Zapruder Film (Red Hen Press, 2009), and editor of Crossing the Rubicon: The Decline of the American Empire at the End of the Age of Oil by Michael C. Ruppert, and Someone Would Have Talked: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy and the Conspiracy to Mislead History by Larry Hancock. Both poets have backgrounds in theater, so expect to be entertained.
WHERE: Flintridge Bookstore & Coffeehouse, 1010 Foothill Blvd., La Cañada-Flintridge, CA 91011
WHEN: Sunday, July 7th, 5 p.m., and every first.
HOW: Each poetry performance is free and open to the public.
