Announcing Folk Rock Fiction, Sunday May 3 at 107 Suffolk Bar

Three local writers provide the fiction. Voyles and the Is My Heroes provide the folk rock. You provide the audience.

and invite you to join us Sunday, May 3 at 6 p.m. in the gallery space at 107 Suffolk on the Lower East Side, as three local writers get into the folk rock spirit by reading fiction about coal miners, train wrecks, and the Bells of Rhymney. Or, you know, anything they want. They are:

Sara Lippmann holds a BA from Brown and an MFA from The New School. She has written for magazines, taught English composition, and currently spends a lot of time scraping dried bits of Play-Doh off her floor. Her work has appeared in The Raleigh Quarterly, Fourth Genre, Illness & Grace (an anthology), LIT, Carve and the Beacon Street Review. She lives in Brooklyn with her husband, daughter, and son.

Melanie Olson was born in San Francisco, and attended Northwestern University in Chicago, largely because of the weather. She is currently obtaining her MFA in fiction writing at Sarah Lawrence College. If you happen to have a question about Mormons, she's the person to ask (other than an actual Mormon, of course).

Kenton deAngeli is a Russian writer widely regarded as one of the greatest novelists of all time. His masterpieces, War and Peace and Anna Karenina, represent the peak of realist fiction in their scope, breadth and vivid depiction of 19th-century Russian life and mind.

Voyles and the Is My Heroes (formerly known as Voyles Is My Hero) is currently based in Yonkers, N.Y. It consists of singer-songwriter Aaron Voyles on acoustic guitar and everything else, playing witty, acerbic and always-melodic songs in the style of Nick Cave and Leonard Cohen.

107 Suffolk Street is between Rivington Street and Delancey Street, on the Lower East Side of Manhattan

By train: Take the F train to Delancey Street or J , M , or Z to Essex Street. Walk to Suffolk Street, make a left. (around the corner from ABC No Rio). It kind of looks like a church.

Do you mean to say 'Aaron Dub U. "Bald Hills" Voyles of the Voyles and the Hill Balding is my Heroes' will be performing? That's nuts. I guess I'll have to see that before his name gets too long to put on a flier.
