Get Lit: The Body says
Inspired by 17th Century French Salons - intimate gatherings where people would come together to exchange literary and philosophical ideas under the roof of an educated host - Four Chambers Press will be hosting a night of literary conversation, community - and of course, drinking - with Phoenix Poet Laureate and ASU Lecturer of English Rosemarie Dombrowski, PhD.

This month's topic: The Body
How do we represent the body in literature? What about other people's bodies? What kinds of assumptions--race, gender, age, sexuality, ability--structure our perceptions and discourse? How do we give voice to the body on the page?

Meet us in The Reading Room inside The Rose Room at Valley Bar (Basement, 130 North Central Avenue, Phoenix, AZ 85004). Valley Bar is located on Monroe St down the alley between Central and 1st Ave. Parking is available in several public garages around the area and at meters down First Ave. Valley Bar is also a two-minute walk from the light rail via the Central Ave and Van Buren stop. We also recommend a bicycle.

As space is limited, we recommend arriving early to secure your seat.

Please e-mail us at fourchamberspress@gmail.com with any questions or suggestions for future topics. Hope to see you there!
