Teleportal 4: Fusebox
Apr 15 10
As part of this month’s Fusebox Festival, Monofonus presents the fourth installment of Austin’s most multimedia reading series. If you love reading but hate readings, fear not: this is literature at its most laid-back. This month’s Teleportal features a live reading by local fiction writer Amelia Gray, an interactive performance by blackout poet Austin Kleon, and a teleportal reading by Jon Cotner and Alex Karpovsky from Cotner and Andy Fitch’s Ten Walks/Two Talks. As always, there will be a special musical guest and a pop-up shop with selections from Domy Books.
Amelia Gray‘s writing has appeared in American Short Fiction, McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, DIAGRAM, and Caketrain, among others. She is the author of AM/PM, published by Featherproof Books, and Museum of the Weird, due August 2010 through Fiction Collective 2.
Austin Kleon is a writer, cartoonist, and web designer. He’s best known for his Newspaper Blackout Poems — poetry made by redacting words from newspaper articles with a permanent marker. His first book, Newspaper Blackout, was published by Harper Perennial this month.
Jon Cotner and Andy Fitch are the authors of Ten Walks/Two Talks (Ugly Duckling Presse, 2010). Cotner lives in New York City. Fitch is an assistant professor in the University of Wyoming’s MFA Program.
