ACTION BOOKS LAUNCH PARTY: Arielle Greenberg, Aase Berg & Lara Glenum - Saturday, Oct. 22, 7PM - Little Kings Club

You are warmly invited to the Action Books launch party and poetry reading at 7:00PM on Saturday, October 22 at Little Kings Club (corner of Hull and Hancock). We will be celebrating the publication of Action Books’ inaugural three titles: The Hounds of No, by Athens’ own Lara Glenum, Arielle Greenberg’s My Kafka Century, and Remainland, the selected poems of Swedish poet Aase Berg. All three poets will read from their books, and there will be general celebratory mayhem.

Action Books is an independent poetry press launched in 2005 by Johannes Goransson (Athens, GA) and Joyelle McSweeney (Tuscaloosa, AL).

Arielle Greenberg is the author of Given (Verse, 2002) and the chapbook Fa(r)ther Down: Songs from the Allergy Trials (New Michigan, 2003). Her poems have appeared or are forthcoming in the anthologies Best American Poetry 2004 and 2005, Legitimate Danger: American Poets of the New Century, and Isn't It Romantic: 100 Love Poems by Younger American Poets and in journals including Conjunctions, Denver Quarterly, and American Poetry Review.

Aase Berg is a poet, literary critic and translator. She is the author of four books: Hos rådjur (With Deer, 1997); Mörk Materia (Dark Matter, 2000 ), a book-length science-fiction prose poem; Forsla fett (Transfer Fat), which was nominated for the prestigious Augustpriser for the best poetry book of 2002; and Uppland (2005). She currently resides in Stockholm.

Lara Glenum’s poetry has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize and has appeared in Conjunctions, New American Writing, Denver Quarterly, Fence, American Letters & Commentary, and elsewhere.
