June 26th- Rutkowski and Quatroche in Fox Chase

June 26th 2pm  

Featured Poets Reading at 3 Sisters Corner Café, 7950 Oxford Ave., Philadelphia, Pa. 19111. The Fox Chase Reading Series presents Featured Poets Thaddeus Rutkowski and Vincent Quatroche followed by an open mic.


Thaddeus Rutkowski  is the author of the novels Tetched and Roughhouse. Both books were finalists for an Asian American Literary Award. Thaddeus teaches fiction writing at the Writer’s Voice of the West Side YMCA in Manhattan. You can read the poetry of Thaddeus Rutkowski in The Fox Chase Review at these links: http://www.foxchasereview.org/09AW/11-TRutkowski.html and http://www.foxchasereview.org/09WS/09-ThaddeusRutkowski.html 


Vincent Quatroche of Dunkirk, New York has been writing for over thirty years. His fifth collection of poetry, prose and short stories entitled The Terrible Now was released in 2009 through Xlibris Press. A persistently cryptic and annoying presence on the poetry circuit in the Northeast region of the United States attempts to silence him have been unsuccessful. In addition, Quatroche works in the spoken word/sonic landscape media and has released numerous projects on tape/CD in the last two decades. A new CD entitled Vanishing Breed was released in 2009. Of course Quatroche doesn’t make a living doing any of things, relying on being employed as a career education at area colleges and correctional facilities, where his students (and inmates) find him equally persistent, cryptic and annoying.
