PPS is back every 4th Friday, and we’re back at our favorite venue, Fillmore Coffee!
And to kick off our fall poetry season, we’re featuring two of our favorites funny guys, Jared Duran and Chris Danowski!
Chris’ debut book, soon-to-be-published by Jared’s new press, makes this a delicious pairing, so we’ll see you around 5:45pm at Fillmore for a pre-reading beverage and snack. Reading begins at 6pm. 🙂

Christopher Danowski is a Lecturer in Performance at the University of Portsmouth (UK), a writer, and a media/performance artist. He has written over fifty plays, performed in living rooms, galleries, and unusual spaces (sometimes in theaters). He was the artistic director of Theater in My Basement from 1999-2013, and now serves as a founding member of Howl Theatre Project. He has performed his own work in Phoenix, Mérida, Dublin, Berlin and Kraków. His debut collection, DOGSEAR, which perfectly showcases Danowski’s wit, humor, linguistic experimentalism, and generosity of spirit, also features artwork by his daughter, Elli Danowski-Underiner. DOGSEAR will be available September 15th from Hoot n Waddle (for more information and links to pre-order, visit http://hootnwaddle.com/dogsear)
