Presenting: Your March Readers

Tomorrow night is our big Oh, Bernice! murder-mystery extravaganza. Join us at 7pm at the Astoria Bookshop, and see if you can nab the perp before he strikes again!


Joel Allegretti is the author of four poetry collections, most recently Europa/Nippon/New York: Poems/Not-Poems (Poets Wear Prada, 2012). His second book, Father Silicon (The Poet’s Press, 2006), was selected by The Kansas City Star as one of 100 Noteworthy Books of 2006. Allegretti is the editor of Rabbit Ears, the first anthology of poetry about television (Poets Wear Prada, 2014). His poetry has appeared in The New York Quarterly, Smartish Pace, PANK and many other national journals, as well as in journals published in Canada, the United Kingdom and India.


John Reid Currie is a member of the writers collective Oh, Bernice! His poetry is featured in Greenwich Villagea Primo Guide to Shopping, Eating, and Making Merry in True Bohemia published by St. Martins Griffin, Five Fathoms published by Protophorm Press and Heskin Contemporary, and most recently Newtown Literary Fall/Winter 2013.


John Rice is as tall as a human sized tree. (A tree that eats sandwiches and reads books.) He has an MFA from Queens College, concentrating on poetry and mayonnaise. He is the former recipient of the Silverstein-Peiser and James Kreuzer awards, and, last year, was a featured reader in both the Queens and Brooklyn College’s Summer Festival of the Performing Arts. He is available for both bachelorette parties and Bar Mitzvahs.

  1. Speaking of Queens…how about going to this tomorrow? John Reid Currie is a pal, these readings are usually fun.

  2. John is Liz’ boyfriend – you met Liz at the mighty sparrow concert at BB Kings, she’s the gorgeous art dealer with white hair! Liz will be there tomorrow — what do you say, dinner and a reading?
