Special Guest Roger Farr will be opening for Louis Cabri with a set from his new production After Villon.  Your host/MC for this Sunday matinee book launch / reading is Clint Burnham.

Hungry Slingshots, Louis Cabri’s first book since Posh Lust in 2014, presents fifteen new works anchored by the eponymic series riffing on a poetic form all the rage during an interesting (17th C.) moment in French history.  Ranging in form but not intent, Hungry Slingshots is redolent with the sights, sounds, and tastes of the present spectacle.
