Area authors Christian Peet, Sam Truitt, Jibade-Khalil Huffman and Laura Didyk will read in celebration of the publication of A Best of Fence, a new anthology of collected works from Fence magazine's first nine years of publication. Refreshments will be served and copies of A Best of Fence will be available for purchase.
Founded in 1998, Fence is a biannual journal of poetry, fiction, art, and criticism that has a mission to redefine the terms of accessibility by publishing challenging writing distinguished by idiosyncrasy and intelligence rather than by allegiance with camps, schools, or cliques. It is part of their mission to support writers who might otherwise have difficulty being recognized because their work doesn’t answer to either the mainstream or to recognizable modes of experimentation.
Join the live studio audience as we record an evening of performances by some of the Capital
Region’s top musical talents representing a variety of genres.
