6/19/13 - Iowa City, Fair Grounds Coffee House: Facebook Event Page
Please join us for a live reading of new and selected work by Austin, Texas poet W. Joe Hoppe.
Iowa's Obsolete Press published Joe's second book of poems, Diamond
Plate, and Joe serves as poetry editor for OBSOLETE! Magazine.
"Diamond Plate is a junkyard sutra, a rock-and-roll dharma, a tattooed
vision of eternity. In the palm of your hand there's a planet, alongside
a sick pet rat, a tree that weeps, and some spilled beer. W. Joe Hoppe
offers us poems of ordinary transcendence, with a child-a real
child-rising out of the rubble." - Nick Flynn, author of Another
Bullshit Night in Suck City
