Two Iowa Readings By OBSOLETE! Poetry Editor W. Joe Hoppe

6/18/13 - Cedar Rapids, New Bo Books: Details at the Facebook Event Page
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
