Celebrating the spirit of collaboration at our eleventh Lone Glen, we are thrilled to host poets Joshua Clover and Juliana Spahr on the evening of Saturday, August 16th. Join us at 6:30 in our garden to hear both their individual works and a new, co-written poem. We will welcome you with libations and snacks, but please feel free to contribute! Find us at 3132 Harrison Street in Oakland.

Joshua Clover’s next book of poetry, Red Epic, will be published in 2015, and his book on political struggle, Of Riot, in 2016. He has collaborated on poetry, critical writing, and conferences with Chris Nealon, Chris Chen, Aaron Benanav, Annie McClanahan, Louis Schwartz, Jasper Bernes, and Juliana Spahr; with the lattermost two, he edits Commune Editions. He is author of two previous books of poetry and two of cultural theory, a longtime columnist and Editorial Board member at Film Quarterly, and a columnist at The Nation.
