The Observable Reading Series on October 7 will feature Tosh Berman and Devin Johnston. Brought to you by St. Louis Poetry Center, the Observable Series welcomes poets to Dressel’s Public House (CWE). Reading begins at 7:30 p.m. in the upstairs loft of the restaurant. The event is free, with a suggested $5 donation at the door.
TOSH BERMAN was born in the late fifties in Los Angeles, the son of Wallace and Shirley Berman, mainstays of that scene described by the California historian Richard Candida Smith as “Utopia and Dissent.” The publisher of TamTam Books, Tosh Berman vlogs on YouTube and writes cultural journalism.
DEVIN JOHNSTON was educated at Oberlin and the University of Chicago; he teaches now at Saint Louis University. He’s the author of eight books–six poetry, two non-fiction. With Michael O’Leary, he runs Flood Editions, a literary publisher.
