***********************
Jason Scorse, Rose Black, and Chella Courington
will be reading Monday, October 10th, 7:30 PM
Santa Cruz Art League Playhouse,
526 Broadway, Santa Cruz, CA, 95060
 
Jason Scorse, fiction: Jason will read from his new novel, As It Was In the Beginning. Mitch Greene, staff writer for a supermarket tabloid, crosses the country following a man imitating the life of Jesus. His experiences cause him to question some of his own long standing beliefs. Equal parts satire and soul-searching, As It Was In The Beginning is a celebration of America in all its contradictory splendor. Jason Scorse, Assistant Professor at Monterey Institute of International Studies, grew up in New York City. He currently resides in Santa Cruz.
 
Rose Black, poetry: Clearing. "Rose Black is an unusually truthful, fresh and unflinching witness to what life has brought her. Her poems are striking in their openness, their painful innocence in the face of experience.  They are deeply moving. A genuine story and voice emerges from Rose Black's body of work." Robert Sward
“Rose Black is a remarkable and heart-breaking poet. Her meditations on the passages of experience and the psychological resonances of childhood are compelling and powerful, surprising and illuminating. There is a quiet and elegant music to Rose Black's poems, and once heard, it's not forgotten.”--David St. John. Rose Black lives with her husband in Oakland, CA. Rose organizes workshops and lectures for artists, poets and writers.
 
Chella Courington, poetry: Southern Girl Gone Wrong. “No one writes of sexuality more sweetly or bitterly than Chella Courington. Her talk is tough, sensual, sparse, yet laced with lyricism and love for the family and all things southern that come from staring truth in the face.” Perie Longo, Author of The Privacy of Wind
“In Chella Courington's "Jesus Loves Me" the speaker fantasizes about making love to Jesus. The experience she describes is both sinful yet oddly innocent, and that atmosphere of naiveté and abandon pervades the poems in Southern Girl Gone Wrong. Her  world is lush, humid, sensual and inviting.” David Starkey. Chella teaches at Santa Barbara City College and has published poems in The Tusculum Review, Ibbetson Street, King Log, In the Grove, and Lotus Blooms Journal.   
 
Independent Voices is open to small press, self-published, and previously published authors from across all genre. For Information, contact: T. Mike Walker, Host; 425-5755 or tmike@townscribe.com
