The Guerrilla Lit Reading Series welcomes Lee Goldberg, Dani Grammerstorf, and Nicole Spector to Bar on A. Join us at 7:30 PM

Also, see some recent news from one of our former readers after the BIOS:

LEE GOLDBERG teaches literature, composition, and film at LaGuardia Community College. He has an MFA from New School University and is one of the founders of the Guerrilla Lit Reading Series. His book reviews have been published at fictionwritersreview.com. Right now he is finishing his first novel and a collection of short stories. He is a native New Yorker and dreams of writing a book that reviews all the best pizza in the five boroughs.

DANI GRAMMERSTORF is using her MFA from the New School to make 1,000 paper cranes. Her nonfiction has appeared in Playgirl, and she is currently working on a short story collection, a novel that is sucking the life out of her, and an inappropriate essay that contains naughty language and naked people. Dani spends her days playing Scramble when she's supposed to be processing invoices at her day job. She expects to be fired soon. She lives in Queens, New York.

NICOLE AUDREY SPECTOR, originally from L.A, has lived in New York for the past eight years. She holds a B.A. from the New School. Her writing has appeared or is scheduled to appear in KGB's on-line lit mag, Flavorpill, and various travel, music and trade publications. She is currently working on her first collection of short stories.
