We’ve very excited to announce the lineup of our fall reading: local poets Noah Falck, Paige Melin, and Woogee Bae, and visiting Monster House authors Richard Wehrenberg, Jr., and Bella Bravo. Richard and Bella are touring with their new pamphlets, Reset North America to Default Settings and Public Figures (respectively), both recently out from Monster House Press. We can’t wait to host them here in Buffalo as a stop on their tour, FUTURE ABSENCE TOUR.
Free and open to the public.
Peach Mag is curated by Rachelle Toarmino, Matthew Bookin, and Bre Kiblin. They publish new content on their website every Tuesday and Friday, and focus on bringing together the myriad groups of writers in Buffalo, while putting Buffalo on the map as a host for experimental writing within the greater American literary scene.
