10/2 Book Launch & Poetry Reading: Baldinger, Flynn, macross, Wright @ White Whale

Posted in Events with tags , , , , on September 1, 2019 by 6GPress

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 2…

Jason Baldinger will be launching his newest book at White Whale and reading alongside fabulous local poets April Flynn, miss macross, and visiting poet Daniel W. Wright!

JASON BALDINGER is a poet from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He was recently a Writer in Residence at Osage Arts Community, and is founder and co-director of The Bridge Series. He has multiple books available including the soon to be released The Better Angels of our Nature (Kung Fu Treachery) and the split books The Ugly Side of the Lake with John Dorsey (Night Ballet Press) as well as Everyone’s Alone Tonight with James Benger (Kung Fu Treachery Press). His work has been published widely in print journals and online. You can listen to him read his work on Bandcamp on lps by the bands Theremonster and The Gotobeds.

APRIL FLYNN was born in Louisville, Kentucky, where she was promptly dressed in a bikini due to liver problems. Between then and now she has been a bunch of places and learned and forgotten many things. For instance, she knows how to make frozen spinach palatable and speaks a little bit of Russian. Only one cat has ever disliked her. She can’t draw. She isn’t good with mornings but she’s pretty good in a crisis. A man standing in the road outside a bar in Pittsburgh once mistook her for a demon, or maybe just a very severe angel, though in reality she prefers temperance and moderation. She has a lot of Pisces in her chart, but her sun is in Taurus. In this past year alone, she has shaken hands with the Pennsylvania governor, helped explain the history of country music to West Virginia police officers, and danced with raccoons.

miss macross is a multi-genre writer, workshop organizer for Girls Write Pittsburgh, and host of the Hell’s Lid Reading Series. She was selected by The Incline as part of their 2018 class for “Who’s Next in Pittsburgh Art.” Her work has been published in over 30 literary magazines and anthologies. She has published two chapbooks: MISS MACROSS VS. BATMAN (CWP Collective Press, 2018) and THE MIDNIGHT PRINCESS (2019).

DANIEL W. WRIGHT is a Midwestern son who loves and loathes the red brick town that surrounds him. A poet of the no-collar work force, Wright previously served on the board of independent literary magazine River Styx, and his work has appeared in Gasconade Review, Bad Jacket, Acid Kat, Crappy Hour, Eleven, The Dope Fiend Daily, Under the Bleachers, and The Rye Whiskey Review. His works include Rodeo of the Soul, The Death of the Ladies Man, Small Town Blues: Early Lyrics and Poems, Portrait, Murder City Special, and Working Bohemian’s Blues. Wright currently lives in St. Louis, MO, where you can usually find him in a bar or a bookstore.
