Monday night’s reading was not to be missed. Dolan Morgan kicked us off with a surreal and hilarious excerpt from his recent collection, That’s When the Knives Come Down; Wesley Rothman shared some surprisingly sensual poems; Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich read a portion from her work-in-progress, featuring a slew of intriguingly dangerous characters; and Sam Cha read a delightfully masochistic confessional essay.
Just in case you couldn’t be there, you can still check out the photos below and the videos here.
