Toby Altman & Maggie Queeney to read Sept. 14

Join the Poetry Center of Chicago at City Lit Books for the September installment of the Six Points Reading Series on September 14 at 6:30pm

In 2016 we continue to move to a variety of rotating locations throughout Chicago, and we’re grateful for the community partnerships we’ve been able to develop as a result of this. As always, our readings are free and open to the public.

This month we are pleased to welcome Toby Altman and Maggie Queeney. Curated by Danielle Susi and hosted by Paige Blair.

TOBY ALTMAN is the author of Arcadia, Indiana (Plays Inverse, 2017) and five chapbooks, including, most recently, Security Theater (Present Tense Pamphlets, 2016). His poems and hybrid texts can or will be found in The Black Warrior Review, Lana Turner, Washington Square, and other journals and anthologies.

MAGGIE QUEENEY holds an MFA in Creative Writing from Syracuse University. Her recent work can be found, or is forthcoming, in Painted Bride Quarterly, TYPO, Copper Nickel, Southern Poetry Review, and The Southeast Review, among others. She reads and writes in Chicago.

Be sure to RSVP on Facebook and let us know you’ll be there!

City Lit Books is located in Logan Square at 2523 N Kedzie Blvd. The Logan Square Blue Line stop is just one block away.
