Jon Rutzmoser will be living in Echo Park, Los Angeles in early December. In fact, he's been living there for a while now, and he will continue to live there in early December. Marianne Morris, the British (Canadian-born) poet will be visiting Los Angeles for a few days in early December. Since the two of them have so much in common, we've decided to celebrate by having them each perform a reading at Insert Blanc Press HQ on Sunday December 4, 2011 at 6:30pm. You should come. You might enjoy seeing them perform readings.
If you don't know where Insert Blanc Press HQ is then please rsvp for directions at LALiterature [at] [geeeemail] [dot] com. If you know where Insert Blanc Press HQ is then you don't need to rsvp at all, just show up. Then we will all have so much in common. We will all physically occupy Insert Blanc Press HQ, even if just for a few passing hours. Oh and feel free to bring snacks or something to drink if you like, and if you're not into that sort of thing, that's fine too, just bring yourself andor a friend or just yourself. We'll be very happy to see you.

William Maxwell Evans Perkins was born in New York City in 1884. Though he received a degree in economics from Harvard University, his passion was literature, and after college he took a position at Charles Scribner and Sons as an editor. Perkins was the only editor who recognized the brilliance of F. Scott Fitzgerald's first novel, which would also be true of Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises. Perkins died in 1947.
