Join us for an evening spent in the company of captivating, inventive, soul-soothing word smiths. Readers will include:
Nathan Fredrick is the pen name of Freddy La Force, publisher and editor at Vegetarian Alcoholic. He has produced 12 books for the label since 2014, including two containing his own words, Parallelograms (with Heidi Koos, 2014) and Fall Catalogue (2016). He most recently edited an anthology of 47 Milwaukee poets, Return to the Gathering Place of the Waters.
Georgia Lundeen has a taste for the fantastic but always writes sincerely. Her bold use of traditional meter and occasionally even (gasp) rhyme should not frighten the poetry aficionado as her lines are both surprising and congruent. She self-published her first children’s book, Love Like Us, with Alexandra L. Hemrick in 2014. Her first full-length collection of poetry, spare, was released by Vegetarian Alcoholic in April 2017.
Stephanie Mann has been writing ever since she knew how. With some crayons and folded pieces of paper, she used to craft tales of magical creatures. In high school, Stephanie was an editor and active contributor to her school’s literary magazine. In college, she studied public relations and Spanish. Stephanie now works for a local PR agency in downtown Minneapolis and finds time outside of work to write. You can read some of her poetry on Instagram at @sjmannpoetry and in the most recent issue of Moon Magazine.
