Reading: Dorothy Albertini and JoNelle Toriseva

October 15, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Grab a drink and join us at Nox. Don’t miss this incredible reading by two extraodinary talents!

According to Ann Lauterbach, “Dorothy and Some Kittens, by Dorothy Albertini, is a kind of psychic calendar, brilliantly terse and horribly lucid. And, like all true fiction, it invents the real: ‘It seems familiar, but Dorothy doesn’t let that make her suspicious.’ A marvelous, astute chronicle of intimate estrangement.”

JoNelle Toriseva’s debut collection was recently selected by Shane McCrae for the Saudade poetry prize.
