Please join us for our next installment of Chin Music, Brooklyn's new poetry reading series at Pacific Standard bar in Park Slope. Established and rising poets and writers from near and far are featured during each of our seasons. Our April 10th reading will feature three poets: Brenda Shaughnessy, Craig Morgan Teicher and Jennifer Kronovet . Future readers this season include Eamon Grennan, Ciaran Berry, and Jeffrey McDaniel. Series curated by Colin Cheney.

Located on Fourth Avenue in Brooklyn, near the Atlantic/Pacific station, Pacific Standard is a literary bar serving up over a dozen West Coast microbrews on tap (as well as choice selections from small and local breweries), a fine collection of wines, and tasty cheeses and meats.

Featured Poets:

Craig Morgan Teicher's first book, BRENDA IS IN THE ROOM AND OTHER POEMS, was chosen by Paul Hoover for the 2007 Colorado Prize for Poetry. His next book, a collection of fables called CRADLE BOOK, will be published by BOA Editions in 2010.

Jennifer Kronovet is the author of the poetry collection AWAYWARD, which is forthcoming in 2009 from BOA Editions.
