from Dillon:

Please join us for the first reading in our 2008 series with a too-rare East Bay appearance by SF's Kevin Killian.

We're so happy to have Kevin launch our 2008 series of readings talks and actions around the current state of the HIV/AIDS crisis. A poet, novelist, critic and playwright, Kevin Killian's books include Bedrooms Have Windows, Shy, Little Men, Arctic Summer and Argento Series. With Dodie Bellamy he edits the literary/art zine Mirage #4/Period[ical] in San Francisco. His work has been widely anthologized and has appeared in, among others, Best American Poetry 1988 (ed. John Ashbery), Men on Men (ed. Geo. Stambolian), Discontents (ed. Dennis Cooper) and Wrestling with the Angel (ed. Brian Bouldrey). With Lew Ellingham, Killian is writing a biography of the American poet Jack Spicer (1925-65). He has written many essays and articles on Spicer's work and co-edited Spicer's posthumous books The Train of Thought and The Tower of Babel (both 1994). He and Leslie Scalapino have written a play, Stone Marmalade, on the Orpheus/Eurydice legend, to be published by Singing Horse Books.
