Janice Erlbaum Featured at Cornelia St. Cafe Friday Oct. 3

The weekly Son of a Pony reading series at Cornelia Street Cafe features one of the best writers on the spoken word scene ever with the dynamic, funny poetry of Janice Erlbaum, hosted by TRP's Kathi Georges on Friday, October 3.

Janice Erlbaum is the author of GIRLBOMB: A Halfway Homeless Memoir (Villard, 2006), and HAVE YOU FOUND HER: A Memoir (Villard, 2008). Both books are just knockouts. Earlbaum's writing style makes for a great read, with a lot of humor on top and a roaring echo underneath that resonates long after you put the book down.

Her poetry is one-of-a-kind as well. Funny, disarming, dancing on the razor's edge. She's been published in McSweeney's, the Best American Erotic Poetry anthology, and Aloud: Voices from the Nuyorican Poets' Cafe. And she was a former member of the Pussy Poets, that incredible group of five women who rapped, sang and ripped their way through the poetry stages in 1992.

Erlbaum is really one of the few and far between and we are honored to have her in the house--don't miss the chance to say you were there. Open reading before the feature; sign up at 5:45 to be sure you make the list.
