Chanelle Benz & Christopher Brunt - CITY BY CITY
Brazos Bookstore, Thursday, June 4 at 7pm
Edited by Keith Gessen and Stephen Squibb, City by City is a collection of essays—historical, personal, and somewhere in between—about the present and future of American cities. It sweeps from Gold Rush, Alaska, to Miami, Florida, encompassing cities large and small, growing and failing. These essays look closely at the forces—gentrification, underemployment, politics, culture, and crime—that shape urban life. They also tell the stories of citizens whose fortunes have risen or fallen with those of the cities they call home.

A cross between Hunter S. Thompson, Studs Terkel, and the Great Depression–era WPA guides to each state in the Union, City by City carries this project of American storytelling up to the days of our own Great Recession.

We will be joined by two contributors: Chanelle Benz and Christopher Brunt!

Chanelle Benz's fiction has been published in The O. Henry Prize Stories 2014, Granta, The American Reader, Fence, and others. Her work has also been selected as one of the Top Ten Longreads of 2012. She has an MFA in Creative Writing from Syracuse University and a BFA in Acting from Boston University. She teaches at the University of Houston.

Christopher Brunt is a fiction writer and poet whose work appears in Ploughshares, Drunken Boat, Bat City Review, and others. He is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Houston Honors College, where he teaches courses in world literature and the medical humanities. He received a PhD in English from the University of Southern Mississippi and an MFA in Creative Writing from Syracuse University.

Summer of Shakespeare: The Sonnets
Brazos Bookstore, Friday, June 12 at 6pm
Shakespeare may have made his name in plays, but the man always considered himself a poet. He popularized the Elizabethan style of sonnet, so much so that the form is commonly remembered as a “Shakespearean sonnet.” His plays are full of poetic devices, structure, and meter, and also amazing mixes of verses and prose. In addition to his 154 sonnets, Shakespeare authored three epic poems--and his own grave marker. He was like that.

Join us tonight for to hear some of his best-loved sonnets, as well as incredible moments of poetry from the plays, read by members of the Houston Shakespeare Festival. Spanning the spectrum from deeply romantic to bitingly satiric, these fourteen-line poems are perfect examples of verse and poetics in miniature. Spoken aloud, they live and breathe as much as--or even more than--your typical dramatic writing. Bring your favorite person for a date night, come with your favorite literary-minded friends, or come on your own, because you won’t want to miss this fantastic experience of language and poetry.
