MILO MARTIN & MORE!

Poems for the Utopian Nihilist

Skylight Books presents poet Milo Martin and the Utopian Nihilists, a veritable all-star cast of spoken word poets and writers emanating from the Utopian Nihilist literary movement of the first part of the 21st Century.

Celebrating the new collection of poetry and art by Los Angeles melancholy poet Milo Martin ("poems for the Utopian Nihilist" on Echo Park Press), the evening will include readings and performances by spastic spoken word artist and fiction writer Rich Ferguson (new CD "Where I Come From"), notorious performance poet and art critic Jerry the Priest, best-selling blunt cadence author Brad Listi ("Attention.Deficit.Disorder.", Simon & Schuster), Pushcart prize nominee and short story writer Mary Otis (Yes, Yes Cherries," Tin House Press), hyper-intense neo-Elizabethean drive-by poet Chris Tannahill, the sweetly-sardonic stylings of poetess Hannah Wehr and Venetian acoordion diva Mrs. Hobbs.
