Buncha Gringo Poet Dudes

April 24, 2019

Monday, April 29th at 8 PM, the store will host three American poets in the city, featuring readings by Dylan Angell (NY), Ian Collins (CA), William Savinar (DF).

New York-based poet Dylan Angell will read from ‘Sinking Windows’, a bilingual collection of observational poems and prose pieces written in April of 2019 while in attendance at the Mexico City-based arts residency, The Lab Program. Dylan will also read from his previous books. Copies of all of his books will be for sale at the event.

Ian Collins is a writer, musician, and manual laborer from the California desert. His prose poems are comprised of the unknowing, the anxious, the unfinished, the zenned-out; broadcast like cartoons from a clandestine station. Ian has been living in Mexico City for four months.

William Savinar, a writer and English teacher living in Mexico City, will read from his recent poetry chapbook ‘The Naked Gallows’ ($150MX). Savinar writes research-based analysis and creative nonfiction on narcos and the drug war and plays drums in the band Municiones Improvisadas.
