Featherboard Writing Series Reading

George Reiger
Heron Hill cemetery, Locustville, Virginia
Circa 1975
This coming Saturday, August 3, I will read selections from the chapbook I've produced in conjunction with the Aggregate Space and Featherboard Writing Series Writer-in-Residence Program. The chapbook is a meditation on my rural upbringing; along with my text, it features photographs taken by either me or my father. A limited edition of the chapbook will be available at the reading. (I will also design and release an e-chapbook version later this year.)

If you're in the Bay Area, please consider coming to Aggregate Space for the event.

Saturday, August 3rd @ 5pm
Aggregate Space Gallery
801 W. Grand Ave. (enter on West St) in Oakland
Exhibition on view: CINDERSCAPE: New Work by Jaime Lakatos

FARNOOSH FATHI was born in 1981 and raised in the suburbs of Los Angeles. Her first book of poems, Great Guns, was just published by Canarium Books.

CHRISTINE CHOI passes time lollygagging in matters of the heart, navigating human-animal-machine relationships, considering video games, and dreaming in sounds. She holds an MFA from the California College of the Arts, and her writing has appeared in Paul Revere’s Horse, In Posse Review, BANG OUT, or was performed with Soundwave, NOMA GALLERY, POW!POW!POW! Action Art Festival, Small Press Traffic’s Poet’s Theater Extravaganza, and Bay Area Poetry Marathon at The Lab.

CHRISTOPHER REIGER is a writer and artist originally from Virginia's rural Delmarva Peninsula. Before moving to the Bay Area, he lived and worked in New York City for a decade, where he graduated from the MFA program at the School of Visual Arts (NYC) in 2002. He has exhibited his artwork in the United States and abroad and has contributed art criticism to a number of print and online journals. Additionally, essays and short-form pieces about art, natural history, and miscellany have been published in various books and magazines as well as on his long-running blog, Hungry Hyaena. In 2011, he and artist-curator Selene Foster co-founded the non-profit organization BAASICS (Bay Area Art & Science Interdisciplinary Collaborative Sessions).
