Family Archaeology and Other Poems
Dawson's Book Shop is pleased to welcome author Ian Monk for a special reading from his new book Family Archaeology and Other Poems, published by Make Now Press. Monk is a member of the Ouvroir de Littérature Potentielle, (OULIPO), a group, based in France, devoted to the exploring the possibilities of restrictive writing methods; all the poems in Monk's book have been generated from a challenging formal constraint.
"Once upon a time there was a potential literature; now, thankfully, it's been realized. Ian Monk's concrete language hits you like a ton of bricks. As visual as it is verbal, Monk's quantification of the contemporary churns the mundane into the exotic," - Kenneth Goldsmith
Joseph Thomas of CSUN (who read wonderfully at B&N Glendale a few weeks ago!) and Kenneth Goldsmith (aka Kenny G) will also read.
Dawson's Book Shop is located at 535 N. Larchmont Boulevard, between Melrose and Beverly (north of the Village), in the Hollywood/Hancock Park area. Thomas Guide 593, F-7.
