Small Press Traffic is pleased to present
Brandon Brown & Brent Cunningham
Friday, November 18, 2005 at 7:30 p.m.

Brandon Brown read brilliantly at the War & Peace party last spring and we are
very pleased to have him back for a full reading now. Brown is the author of
the unpublished books Aphorisms Ghosts, Gnomic Utterances, Metaxia, Four
Pre-Socratic Philosophers, The Bridge Book, Pool, The Laws, My Life As A
Lover, Kidnapped, 1616, and Odes, in addition to unpublished translations of
Catullus, Horace, Diogenes Laertius, and Euripides' Hippolytus. His work has
appeared in Mirage / Period(ical), Small Town, Bombay Gin, Shampoo, and
Crumpets. He co-curates Performance Writing at New Langton Arts.

Brent Cunningham joins us in celebration of his debut collection, Bird &
Forest, out this year from Ugly Duckling Presse in Brooklyn. Peter Gizzi
writes"the repeated 'awakenings' of Bird & Forest suggest the wonder of
conversion narrative without the ideological baggage. Engaging myriad
rhetorical 'types,' he exhausts their function to disclose the backstory of
creation, romantic love, and the curious permanence of warfare while
gorgeously demonstrating the resilience of the imagination." Since 1999
Cunningham has worked for Small Press Distribution in Berkeley.

Unless otherwise noted, events are $5-10, sliding scale, free to current SPT
members and CCA faculty, staff, and students.
Unless otherwise noted, our events are presented in
