Sonora Review Community Reading Series

Come join Sonora Review on Wednesday, July 13 for the kickoff event of their first ever Community Connection reading series. This event is FREE and open to the public. Three local authors will read from their poetry and nonfiction:

Jamison Crabtree serves on the POG board of directors and edits poetry for Spork Press. His work appears in LIT, Handsome, Hayden’s Ferry Review, PANK, Makeout Creek, kill author, and many other wonderful places.

Daisy Pitkin grew up in rural Ohio with her three brothers. For the last 10 years, she has worked as a rebel rouser, campaign director, contract negotiator, and campaign writer supporting the organizing efforts of garment and industrial laundry workers around the world. She mainly writes nonfiction.

Pictured at right, Joshua Marie Wilkinson’s recent works are Selenography, with Polaroids by Tim Rutili (Sidebrow Books 2010); Made a Machine by Describing the Landscape, a film about Califone (IndiePix Films 2011), and Poets on Teaching (University of Iowa Press 2010). His next book, Swamp Isthmus, is forthcoming from Black Ocean (2013). He teaches in the MFA program at the University of Arizona.

Tucson’s own Brass Tax will provide music after the reading. Formed in July of 2010. Brass Tax set out to create a unique style of music with an unconventional setup and instrumentation. Using traditional instruments, programming, auxiliary percussion with junkyard items, and whatever else we can make noise with makes creating music an always exciting challenge and our sonic palette as colorful as possible.

Sonora Review, edited and produced by University of Arizona Creative Writing graduate students, is a nationally distributed biannual literary journal publishing prose and poetry from both established and emerging writers. Founded in 1980, it is one of the oldest student-run literary journals in the country. Sonora Review also takes pride in its essential connection to Southern Arizona and particularly Tucson. Therefore, the Sonora Review Community Connection series seeks to bridge the gap between the University of Arizona campus and the greater Tucson community.
