Beyond Baroque in Venice, CA on Friday, May 28 at 7:30 pm

Beyond Baroque Literary Arts Center welcomes Nicholas Karavatos and Ivan Goldman.

NICHOLAS KARAVATOS is included in the anthology Punk Rock Saved My Ass (Ukiah: Medusa’s Muse, 2010) and the latest issue of West Wind Review (University of Southern Oregon, 2010). In December 2009, Amendment Nine published his first book titled No Asylum (Arcata, 2009).

David Meltzer wrote on the back cover: “Nicholas Karavatos is a poet of great range and clarity. This book is an amazing collectanea of smart sharp political poetry in tandem with astute and tender love lyrics. All of it voiced with an impressive singularity.”

IVAN G. GOLDMAN will read from his political satire Exit Blue (Black Heron Press; 2010) and discuss how this, his third novel came about and answer questions on related matters such as invading Denmark and why maybe it's not such a good idea after all to elect imbeciles and crooks to high office. His previous novel, The Barfighter (Permanent Press; 2009) was nominated as a 2009 Notable Book by the American Library Foundation.
