Amanda Earl features at The Dusty Owl Reading Series, Ottawa: Sunday, September 22, 2013

Ottawa writer, small press publisher and above/ground press author Amanda Earl does her final reading of 2013 this Sunday afternoon at The Dusty Owl Reading Series, co-featuring alongside Ottawa fiction writer Craig Calhoun [see her post about such here]. With featured reader(s) and an open set, The Dusty Owl Reading Series is held at Mugshots Bar, 75 Nicholas Street, Ottawa and begins at 3pm.

above/ground press has been fortunate enough to produce three of Amanda Earl's poetry chapbooks -- E l e a n o r (2007), The Sad Phoenician's Other Woman (2008) and Sex First & Then A Sandwich (2012) -- all of which are still available.

As she writes:
Please join me & my illustrious compatriot, the darkly poetic/poetically dark fiction writer Craig Calhoun for our featured readings this Sunday:

Dusty Owl Reading Series
Mugshots Bar, 75 Nicholas Street
Sunday, September 22, 3pm

Craig says he's going to read us stories of murder & fire. Also he reports that there is a skeleton in the Mugshots Courtyard.

I'll be reading mostly new un-related soundy poems featuring the Furious Girl, the World-Owes-Him-A-Living Guy, Daphne-the Dame of the Dolphin, skullduggery, jiggery pockery, hermit crabs, King Arthur, the yellow brick road, Imogen, Sir Ender of the Liquor Ardour, hounderifics, clam ditties, Bro Diddley, Madam Bovary, stodgy otters, diphthongs &  more disreputable characters…

I hope to see you there.

For those of you who like doing such things, here is the FaceBook event to sign up to.
