Default Coe and O'Carroll in Brooklyn

The Artful Dodgers reading series will feature me and Terese Coe on Sunday, March 25, at the Montauk Club, 25 8th Ave., Brooklyn. The reading runs 1-3 p.m., with the two of us and an open mic.

The 4 or 5 train from Manhattan will be making weekend stops at Grand Army Plaza, just around the corner from the Montauk Club. The Q train will stop at 7th Ave., about a block and a half from the Club, and the 7th Ave stop on the F train will leave you a 10-15 minute walk up 8th Ave.

Terese or I will bump this announcement up as the date draws closer, and you can PM either of us for more details.

Chris,

I wish I could attend, but I'm still in Uruguay. I went to Woodstock last year to hear Terese and Wendy S., which was wonderful.

Best wishes for a great reading and an appreciative audience, and thank you for those directions. I'll be reading at that venue on April 29th and hadn't the slightest idea of how to get there!

Cathy

Thanks, John!

re transportation by subway: Normally the 2 and 3 stop at Grand Army Plaza, but only the 4 and 5 will stop there from now till summer. Walk along 8th Ave. to the Montauk Club.

The Q and F trains stop at 7th Ave. in Brooklyn, and Harvey Soss, the host of the Artful Dodger reading series, recommends taking the 8th Ave. exit from those trains.

The Montauk Club is an architectural gem designed by Francis H. Kimball in the Venetian Gothic style. It is a Venetian palazzo in the style of the Palazzo Santa Sofia (Ca' d'Oro) on Venice's Grand Canal. Here are some photos:

Thank you so much, Susan~~wish you could be here! Chris and I will be reading satire and humorous verse for the most part.

The host, Harvey Soss, has this to add: "Come read with us, or just listen amidst Old World elegance, in our Fontana Room whose stained glass windows, original wall friezes, exquisite chandelier and grand piano make for an enjoyable afternoon of poetry."

Almost sounds as if I need some new threads! Nahhhh.

For those who want to see the bios, voila:

He’s a Light magazine featured poet and frequently contributes rude topical satire to that journal’s “Poems of the Week.” His verse has appeared in such diverse collections as Kansas Time + Place, New York City Haiku, The Best of the Barefoot Muse, and The Great American Wise Ass Poetry Anthology.
