Joint Work

William Gillespie
Nick Montfort
Scott Rettberg
Dirk Stratton

read from three bizarre and exciting
literary collaborations
with heart

Kelly Writers House February 14, 4pm

Thanks to all who attended Joint Work and made the reading a great success. Amazingly, although it was a Saturday and the Day of Love, The Arts Café was packed. Everyone seemed to enjoy our readings from 2002: A Palindrome Story, Implementation, and The Unknown. Many thanks to the Writers House, and particularly to Jen Snead; also, thanks to Jill Walker for the photos below.
