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.

Manayunk Arts Center Presents Quatroche and Reutter- Sept 20th

BUKOWSKI-CONNECTED PROGRAM: VINCENT QUATROCHE & G.EMIL REUTTER READ THEIR OWN POEMS & COMMENT ON THE WRITINGS & INFLUENCE OF CHARLES BUKOWSKI

                                                                                            

            Manayunk Art Center located at 419 Green Lane (rear) presents “A Bukowski-Connected Afternoon: Vincent Quatroche and G. Emil Reutter Read Their Own Poems & Comment on the Writings & Influence of Charles Bukowski ” on Sunday, September 20 from 3:00 PM – 5:30 PM.  Attendees also invited to read Bukowski material in an Open Reading. $4 Donation requested. Refreshments available.  Phone: 215-482-3363.

 

The Bukowski-Connected Program will include a talk titled “Don’t Try” by Quatroche. “Don’t Try” are the words engraved on Bukowski’s tombstone (he died in 1994).  The meaning of “Don’t Try” is interpreted as don’t try to be like anybody else. Bukowski has become an emblematic figure for the modern outsider and depraved individualist.  Time magazine called Bukowski the “laureate of American lowlife.”  A well-known Bukowski quote is “These words I write keep me from total Madness.” The misfit Bukowski is like no one else in American literature. Some compare Bukowski to Jack Kerouac, the iconic figure of the “Beats.”

 

G Emil Reutter, who resides in the Fox Chase section of Philadelphia, knocked around as a Tea Blender, Steel Worker, Warehouse worker, Car wash guy, Busboy, Short order cook and Gas pump jockey. Finally he settled down for 25 years as a railroad cop, raised a family, and recently retired from the railroad job. His most recent collection of selected poems titled Blue Collar Poet was released in February of this year. Seven collections of his poetry and short fiction have been published

 

Vincent Quatroche is a frequent presence on the New York City spoken word poetry scene.  A profile of his work appeared on PBS in 1998. He is a much-published and traveled author who has generated numerous creative projects, including several books and audio/video interpretations of his work. He has been a member of the Communication and English Department at Jamestown Community College since 1997 and has been on the faculty in the Communication Department at Fredonia State College since the late 80s. He has also served as an Instructor in Adult Education for the Chautauqua County Jail in Mayville NY since 1996.   

 

            Peter Krok, the Humanities Director of the MAC, hosts and coordinates the Sunday series, which is now in its twentieth year.  Attendees are invited to share Bukowski work or their own comments on Bukowski.. Light refreshments will be served. For information about literary programs contact the MAC at 215-482-3363.
