“I think we are starting to create a vibe in the writing community,” said poet/host and Como resident Stan Kusunoki about the “Bridges” reading at Barnes & Noble HarMar (2100 N. Snelling Ave.) 7pm, Thur., Mar. 16. “Now, I hope we can draw out the larger neighborhood.”
“This month is a good test of the outreach,” he says. “If you missed the DOUBLE book launch by Paula Cisewski, after her double book launch last month, will be joined by hip-hop, female DJ pioneer, Desdemona Ross; Michael Bazzett, author of another new publication, “Our Lands Are Not So Different” (image right); Jennifer Kwon Dobbs, author of “Paper Pavilion”, “Notes from a Missing Person”, and the upcoming “Interrogation Room”; 2016-17 Loft Minnesota Emerging Writers Grant recipient, Su Hwang; Haley Lasché, author of the chapbook, “Where It Leads” and Sara Krassin, Marketing and Communications intern at the LOFT and curator of the IT’S LIT blog.
“The idea is to bring a mix of cultures, generations, even different genres, and see what kinds of connections thread through the readings of the participants,” said Kusunoki.
