The Guerrilla Lit Reading Series is pleased to announce that our reading scheduled for Wednesday, February 29th will feature Lev Grossman, Wynne Renz, and Edwin Wilson Rivera.

The reading will occur at BAR on A at 7:30 PM. The event is FREE and open to the public.

Lev Grossman is the author of the New York Times-bestselling novels The Magicians and The Magician King. In another reality, he is the book critic for Time magazine.

Wynne Renz is a writer (TV/Film, fiction, & poetry) and professional namer. She co-wrote the feature film, Bedrooms, currently airing on Showtime Networks. Her first chapbook collection of poetry, Nobody Loves Nobody (the fussfactory press), received critical acclaim from Al Young, the Poet Laureate of California, emeritus, who stated her poems are “drunk with language, and bright with youthful worry and wonder for the world…with texts as recklessly scored and punctuated as Emily Dickinson’s originals.” She lives in New York, NY.

Edwin Wilson Rivera was born and raised in Bayonne, New Jersey. A former member of the United Steelworker’s Union, he’d held a variety of jobs, from working the production line in a mayonnaise factory to laboring as a dockman for an oil company. His work has been published in The Global City Review, Monkeybicycle, Pank, Folly, The White Whale Review and Acentos Review, among others. In July 2011, he was a recipient of the Norman Mailer Fiction Fellowship. He lives in New York City, where he is pursuing an MFA in fiction at the New School.

One thought on “Wednesday, February 29th

  1. The pen will always be mightier than the sword or the Kalashnikov because the weapon when it is idle cannot convince the possessor of anything. The written word in book or essay has infinite possibilities while the weapon remains mute.
