whitespace and Possible Futures host reading party for Five Points: A Journal of Literature and Art

Possible Futures and whitespace have teamed up to host a series of reading parties based around new issues of Five Points: A Journal of Literature & Art, an internationally respected literary journal published by Georgia State University and co-edited by Megan Sexton and Georgia poet laureate, David Bottoms. Last night was the inaugural event featuring readings by contributing local writers: Gregory Fraser, Anya Silver and Laurie Watel and a rare musical performance by Bach on a Hook with Marty Matteson on viola and  Chris Verene, whose photographs are featured in the issue, on drums. Local bookstore, Acapella Books, was on site showcasing the Five Points journal along with Chris Verene’s photography book, Family and books of poetry, Answering the Ruins by Gregory Fraser and The 93rd Name of God by Anya Silver. Please stay tuned for further readings hosted at the one and only whitespace gallery!
