After a brief respite -- during which we actually had some terrific group readings by local and out-of-town poets -- the in your ear reading series is back and open for business! Please join us at the DC Arts Center this Sunday, January 15 at 3pm for what promises to be a special occasion: Catherine Daly is travelling all the way from Los Angeles to make a stop here on her East Coast tour, and she'll be joining a celebration of the first book publication by our very own Leslie Bumstead.

Leslie Bumstead is the author of Cipher/Civilian, hot off the presses from Edge Books. Poems have appeared in your black eye, The Tangent, Anomaly, Lungfull!, and Gare Du Nord. Recent work has been in collaboration with Jean Donnelly. Read her poems online at Poets & Writers and Between People & Living Things.

Catherine Daly is author of DaDaDa, a trilogy in one volume which is the first of four projected volumes of the 1,000 page project CONFITEOR, and Locket, a shiny golden book of love poems. She is also author of the forthcoming books Secret Kitty, a flarf critique of flarf and flarf translation, and Paper Craft, a book of poems including some which are objects made of poetry. Last time she was in DC, she was developing some intranet systems for The World Bank's processing and approval of trust funds on I Street while living out of a suitcase in Crystal City.

The DC Arts Center is located at 2438 18th Street NW, just south of Columbia Road in the heart of the Adams Morgan neighborhood. Admission is $3, and free for DCAC members. Directions at http://www.dcartscenter.org/location.htm
