Please consider doing your laundry with us on Saturday, September 21st at 7:00 PM for a WASH/DRY/FOLD event featuring A Common Sense Reading Series. The Series and its founder, Jordan Stempleman, were recently listed among the Top 200 advocates for American Poetry in the US.
Mia ALVARADO is the author of Hey Folly (Dos Madres Press). She has work forthcoming in the Boston Review, and other recent stuff in The Point, Thermos and Jacket 2. She’s working on a collection of lyric essays called Goodnight Goodnight Goodnight Good Morning and a post-apocalyptic novel set in Colorado, where she lives. She’s a gardener, teacher, and ma, in the opposite order.
Nico ALVARADO is a graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop. He is currently at work on a novel.
Amelia MCKNIGHT has lived in and around Kansas City her entire life. She is currently a senior in painting at the Kansas City Art Institute. She collects books about animals and likes to go to the zoo.
A Common Sense Reading Series aims to pair emerging and established writers from Kansas City and all over the world. These readings could happen nearly anywhere: a gallery, an apartment, a laundromat, the back of a bike shop, or a college auditorium.
