WAX WROTH READING & MUSIC SERIES, #3: THE BITTERSWEET EDITION STARRING TONY TOST

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE–SPREAD FAR AND WIDE
WAX WROTH READING & MUSIC SERIES, #3:
THE BITTERSWEET EDITION
Starring TONY TOST
When:
Saturday, July 10, 8 p.m.
Where:
715 Washington in Durham (just off the intersection of Washington and Trinity, very close to the old baseball field)
*****
Please join us to fete and savor the Durham-based poet and writer Tony Tost before he leaves us for the Pacific Northwest.
It’ll go something like this: at 8 p.m., Tony will give a nice roomy reading—his last before leaving the Triangle! 


Then we’ll have an informal musical jam session led by your bandleader, Tony Tost—participation is open to all but of course not required. Feel free to bring acoustic instruments and noisemakers!
Tony has been a good friend to a lot of us and an important voice for poetry in Durham and beyond—not to mention just a really fine poet. Hope you take this chance to see him off in style!
Admission is free and open to the public, though donations will be accepted for Tony and his family as they prepare to move cross-country. Please contact Wax Wroth organizer Brian Howe with any related inquires.

TONY TOST’s first book, Invisible Bride, was selected by C.D. Wright as the winner of the 2003 Walt Whitman Award. It was followed by the 2005 chapbook, World Jelly (Effing Press) and the 2007 book Complex Sleep (University of Iowa Press). He was a co-founding editor of Octopus Magazine, and the founding editor of Fascicle. Tost is currently writing a book on Johnny Cash’s first American Recordings album for Continuum Press’ 33 1/3 series, and completing a dissertation on technology, myth and 20th century poetics at Duke University.
