The Loudest Voice! Press Release!USC’S PHD IN LITERATURE AND CREATIVE WRITING PROGRAM PRESENTS:
THE LOUDEST VOICE: WORDS AND MUSIC
Authors, artists, and musicians gather at Chinatown’s Mountain Bar
Los Angeles, CA, November 10, 2006—USC’s Ph.D. in Literature and Creative Writing Program is pleased to announce the second reading of The Loudest Voice, a new series that pairs established authors with emerging L.A. writers.
This reading will feature special guest Glen David Gold, acclaimed author and journalist.
Glen David Gold is the author of Carter Beats the Devil, an international best seller currently translated into 14 languages. He has written fiction, essays and memoir for Playboy, McSweeney's and the New York Times Sunday Magazine. He has also contributed work to many anthologies that were remaindered as quickly as they were printed.
Katherine Karlin's short story "Bye-bye Larry," which was first published in ZYZZYVA, won a 2007 Pushcart Prize and is included in the current pushcart anthology. Her fiction has also appeared in North American Review, Other Voices, and elsewhere, and she has written theater reviews and arts features for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the Los Angeles Daily News.
Cody Todd has had work appear in Third Coast, LitRag, Armchair Citizen, Lake Effect and Forklift. He has an MFA from Western Michigan University. His manuscript, Graffiti Signature, was a finalist for the 2006 Stan and Tom Wick Poetry Prize from Kent State Press.
Andrew Allport has performed with a number of different bands from L.A. to New Hampshire. His recent solo performances and EP include guitar, vocals, and whistling. His music is neither here nor there, but somewhere between hither and thither, rhyme and reason, sound and fury.
The event will take place on Wednesday, December 6, 2006, from 8:00-10:00 pm. An artist reception, featuring work by Blake Lemons, Andrea Breitman, Helen Lord, and other L.A. artists, starts at 8:00 pm, followed by the reading at 8:30 pm. No cover. Street parking is available on Broadway, Hill and College Streets.
Location: The Mountain Bar
