Limitless Language 

Wednesday, Mar 5 2014

In celebration of its 40th season, Small Press Traffic brings together Renee Gladman and Eveyln Reilly for a reading of their work. Massachusetts-based Gladman, whose writing (Event Factory) is a dizzying, fascinating combination of prose and poetry that exposes and challenges the limitations of language, joins New York-based eco-poet Reilly, whose work (Styrofoam) addresses the intersections of nature with the human fabrication of materials. Hosted by former SPT director Jocelyn Saidenberg, the event gives each of the authors a chance to stretch out and share a sizable sampling from their vast palettes. Reilly was in Oakland a few months ago for the Studio One Reading Series; more than a few people remarked that they enjoyed allowing her language "to wash over" them and swore they wouldn't miss her return for SPT. A teacher at Brown University, Gladman has helped many writers develop their work, editing the experimental prose chapbook series Leon Works and the Leroy Chapbooks.
