Wednesday, April 16: 7:30, Weigand Gallery. Reading and reception for author Thomas Sayers Ellis. Thomas Sayers Ellis was born and raised in Washington, D.C. His first full collection, The Maverick Room, was published by Graywolf Press in 2005, for which he received a Mrs. Giles Whiting Writers’ Award and the 2006 John C. Zacharis First Book Award. The collection is “marked by inner-city youth culture energy that is part lyrical narrative, part “Parliament Funkadelic,” a blend of chaos and control through the sheer and simple power of words” (Midwest Review). His newest collection is Skin, Inc.: Identity Repair Poems (Graywolf, 2010), including his own photographs. He is also the author of The Good Junk (Take Three #1, Graywolf 1996); a chapbook The Genuine Negro Hero (Kent State University Press, 2001); and the chaplet Song On (WinteRed Press 2005). His Breakfast and Blackfist: Notes for Black Poets is forthcoming from the University of Michigan Press, Poets on Poetry Series. He is a contributing editor to Callaloo and Poets and Writers magazine. For a flyer about the event (from which this description comes), click here: Ellis-1.
