THE LITTLE THEATRE AND WRITERS & BOOKS PRESENT AUTHORS ALOUD! WITH AUTHORS PETER CONNORS AND ALBERT ABONADO

(Rochester, NY) March 22, 2013 – The Little Theatre and Writers & Books continue their Authors Aloud! reading series with authors Peter Connors and Albert Abonado on Tuesday, April 2 at 8 PM at the Little Theatre Café. Authors Aloud!, a monthly series where two area authors read and discuss their work, is free and open to the public.

Peter Connors has been mining the non-fiction vein with such books as Growing Up Dead: The Hallucinated Confessions of a Teenage Deadhead (Da Capo Press, 2009), White Hand Society: The Psychedelic Partnership of Timothy Leary & Allen Ginsberg (City Lights, 2010), and his forthcoming book JAMerica: An Oral History of the Jam Band and Festival Scene (Da Capo Press, fall 2013). His other books include the poetry collections Of Whiskey and Winter and The Crows Were Laughing in their Trees (2007 and 2011, both from White Pine Press), the novella Emily Ate the Wind (Marick Press, 2008) and a new odd little story chapbook called Discovering America (Stamped Books, 2012). He works as Publisher for BOA Editions.

Albert Abonado’s poetry has appeared or is forthcoming in Guernica, Rattle, Anti-, Gargoyle, Washington Square, New Ohio Review, No Tell Motel, and The Collagist. He is the Associate Director of Marketing and Production for BOA Editions. He holds an MFA from the Bennington Writing Seminars and has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize.
