Wax Wroth Reading Series #5: Chris Vitiello and Hassan Melehy

Chris Vitiello Book Release Reading (with Hassan Melehy)

On Tuesday, 27 March 2012, at 8 p.m. sharp, the Wax Wroth Reading Series returns to Carrboro’s Looking Glass Café, in a co-presentation with the Hinge Literary Center.

The featured reader is Durham’s CHRIS VITIELLO, arts writer and poet extraordinaire, whose new book Obedience (Ahsahta Press; 2012) can be read forward, backwards, or both ways at once. Regardless, it’s a tour de force of sustained scientific and linguistic interrogation.

Chapel Hill’s HASSAN MELEHY, a poet and literary critic who teaches French at UNC, opens the proceedings. Admission is free, though you can support the Café by purchasing a wide variety of beverages, from espresso to alcohol, and food.
