What should you do this weekend? I'm glad you asked.

If you live in Chicago, hit the Printer's Row Book Fair at Dearborn and Polk and be sure to stop by the Dancing Girl Press table, so you can grab a copy of MY NEW CHAPBOOK.

If you live in New York, come to my Marshmallow Roast, where you will also be able to grab a copy of MY NEW CHAPBOOK. Also reading will be Tao Lin, Elisa Gabbert, Amy King, and Mike Young. Drinks, fire, and marshmallows provided. Bring your own friends.

Tao Lin is the author of the poetry-collection, COGNITIVE-BEHAVIORAL THERAPY (Melville House, 2008), and a few other books.

Elisa Gabbert, a poet living in Boston, is the author of Thanks for Sending the Engine (Kitchen Press, 2007) and, with Kathleen Rooney, That Tiny Insane Voluptuousness (Otoliths Books, 2008).

Mike Young co-edits NOÖ Journal, and his poetry chapbook MC Oroville's Answering Machine is forthcoming from Transmission Press.

Amy King is the author of I'm the Man Who Loves You and Antidotes for an Alibi, both from BlazeVOX Books, The People Instruments (Pavement Saw Press), and most recently, Kiss Me With the Mouth of Your Country (Dusie Press).

Leigh Stein is the author of many chapbooks, including How to Mend a Broken Heart with Vengeance (Dancing Girl Press '08). She was recently nominated for Best New Poets.

Directions: take L train to Morgan stop. Exit station at Bogart. Walk down street immediately ahead. Look for golden bomb shelter doors in the ground about 1/2 block up on your right.

Come early & look at art. Stay late & listen to music.
