Sunday March 8th at 5PM: A NIGHT OF GERTRUDE STEIN


Join us for a night of honoring/conjuring/engaging Gertrude Stein at Innisfree Poetry Bookstore & Cafe as we help raise money for GASP (Girls Assembling Something Perpetual) and their travels!

From the indiegogo:

“GASP is seeking funding of $2500. This will help cover the costs of our 2015 performances, which will take place in Los Angeles, Denver, Boulder, and Colorado Springs. All of our performances are free and open to the public, and your contribution helps us keep it like this!

For the first time, GASP is taking their performances on the road! While we are based in Denver, and have had performances along the Front Range in previous years, 2015 marks the first year where GASP is truly branching out. We’ve been accepted to perform Alice Notley’s The Descent of Alette at CalArts at part of the &Now literary festival. Your contribution helps get the 6 of us from Colorado to California, and we are so appreciative for your generosity!”

5:00-5:45pm Readings by:

Angel Dominguez
Hannah Kezema
J’Lyn Chapman
Eric Baus
Teresa Carmody

6:00-6:30pm Readings by GASP Members:

Andrea Rexilius

There will be an iPad present to donate to the indiegogo campaign directly; we will also be accepting cash, checks, gold, rare manuscripts, precious/metaphysical stones and small dogs.

There will be an open mic sign-up sheet for the Stein portion of the evening for all who would like to partake.

There also might be a silent auction. We’ll see.

Join us for a wonderful wonderful wonderful wonderful wonderful night of Gertrude Stein
