Nagami & Warren @ SPT 12/1

Small Press Traffic is pleased to present a reading by
Heather Nagami & Alli Warren
Friday, December 1, 2006 at 7:30 p.m.

Heather Nagami joins us from North Carolina in celebration of her first book,
(Chax Press). Ron Silliman describes her writing as having “a goofball
elegance that has much to do with the New York School’s commitment to wit.”
Nagami’s poems have appeared in Antennae, Rattle, and Xcp (Cross-Cultural
Poetics). She is codirector of overhere Press, a small press that publishes
hand-bound chapbooks with an emphasis on poets of color and other
underrepresented peoples.

Alli Warren grew up in the San Fernando Valley. She is the author of the
chapbooks Schema, Yoke, Hounds, and most recently Cousins (Lame House Press).
On reading four lines from Hounds, Jack Kimball writes, "A narrow, stodgy and
often ostentatiously learned, pedestrian, callow youth with an unpromising
future, not a voracious reader of fine literature, a painter without pictures,
a radical without followers, a bloviater on par with the windiest, incapable
of getting to the point, one who's cacography was really a mess" She has
performed work recently at the Artifact and New Yipes reading series, and
every weekday at 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 Timken Lecture Hall,
California College of the Arts 1111 Eighth Street, San Francisco (just off the
intersection of 16th & Wisconsin)
