LA-Lit interviews Therese Bachand
Sunday, March 9 at 7pm
We’d like to invite you to a live radio recording, reading & conversation this coming Sunday, March 9 at 7 p.m. at Betalevel in Chinatown. Therese Bachand will be the featured writer on LA-lit, a radio show co-curated by Mathew Timmons & Stephanie Rioux. The show (& hence the recording) lasts a little over an hour and will be about 30 minutes of reading & about 30 minutes of questions & answers/further questions—alternating between the two modes in hopes of creating a space for dynamic conversation.
Thérèse Bachand has two collections of poetry due to be published in 2008 – luce a cavallo, a 2005 Gertrude Stein Book Award (Green Integer Books), and Daughter of the Ephemeral Word (i.e.press). Her work has been anthologized in The PIP Anthology of World Poetry #5 – Intersections: Innovative Poetry in Southern California, and published in many journals, including the Brooklyn Rail, Mirage #4 Period(ical), area sneaks, Minor/American, Primary Writing, Beyond Baroque, and Tinfish. In 2002, she collaborated with Diane Ward and organized a group of LA woman poets who meet periodically on a casual basis.
