The free Silo City Reading Series kicks off on Saturday with poetry readings, live music, and a host of other artistic endeavors. The summer series is presented by Just Buffalo Literary Center and has become a highly anticipated event for Silo City. The line-up for this year’s reading series includes:
Poetry: Zachary Schomburg is the author of four books of poems including, most recently, The Book of Joshua (Black Ocean 2014). He co-edits Octopus Books, and co-curates the Bad Blood Reading Series. He lives in Portland, OR.
Music: Small Houses is a Philadelphia, PA-based alternative country project featuring the songs and poems of Flint, MI-native Jeremy Quentin. Artfully crafted with finger-style guitar and softly sung melodies, the bars of his new album Still Talk; Second City describe the people, the love, and the homes of Quentin’s life.
Photography: Nick Torsell was born in 1989 in Snyder, New York. He went to the appropriate, state required schools until he eventually stumbled into graduating from the University of or at Buffalo with a bachelor’s degree in English Literature. He stumbled around some more until he picked up a camera as an excuse to talk to a girl he liked. His photography “work” consists mostly of in-between non-spaces and his friends. He watches an almost disgusting amount of baseball when he’s not taking photos or working.
Poetry: Alana Kelley is a practicing textual and visual artist from Buffalo, NY. Consisting of video installation, mixed media collage, material and performance poetry, her work embraces contemporary styles, centralizing around the existent ultramodern and millennial.
All readings are free and open to the public and will take place in Silo City’s Marine A. Visit this Facebook page to learn more about the reading series, and to see additional events throughout the summer.
