Event Description

Book Suey's latest Storytelling Series event will feature three poets, Christina Kallery, R.J. Fox, and Matthew Landrum, who will read from and discuss their work. Per usual, enjoy coffee and tea on Book Suey.

Christina Kallery is the author of the chapbook "Adult Night at Skate World" (Dancing Girl Press). Her poetry has appeared in The Collagist, Gargoyle, Failbetter, Rattleand Mudlark, among other publications, including the forthcoming anthology "Respect: The Poetry of Detroit Music." She has served as submissions editor for Absinthe: A Journal of World Literature in Translation and a poetry editor for Failbetter.

R.J. Fox is the award-winning writer of several short stories, plays, poems, a memoir, and 15 feature length screenplays. His first book – a memoir entitled "Love & Vodka: My Surreal Adventures in Ukraine" was previously published by Fish Out of Water Books. His debut novel, "Awaiting Identification," was released last spring and was placed on MLive's top 10 Michigan books of the year. Both books – which were initially screenplays – are currently being developed into feature films. He is on board as a co-producer for "Love & Vodka." He also recently published a collection of essays entitled "Tales From the Dork Side." His work has been published in over 30 literary magazines and journals. He is also the writer/director/editor of several award-winning short films.  

Matthew Landrum is the author of "Berlin Poems" (A Midsummer Night's Press) and translation of "Are there Copper Pipes in Heaven," poems from the Faroese of Katrin Ottarsdottir (The Operating System).
