Gulf Reading Series: Kathy Elliott, Kasten Glover, David MacLean
Writer David MacLean goes back to childhood for his contribution to this months Gulf Coast Reading Series. The story that Im reading is about kids at a pool during the summer, and the awful hierarchy that results, and the narrators failed attempt to be the king badass of the pool, says MacLean, a Ph.D. candidate in the University of Houstons Creative Writing Program, co-founder of Poison Girls Poison Pen Reading Series and Fulbright Scholar just to name a few of his credits. I like matching kids with ugliness because it defeats a lot of our polite, Anne Geddes ways that we think about childhood. I like humiliation as a subject and a muse. Hear MacLean expose childhood for the bastard it is when he reads after UH poets Kathy Elliott and Kasten Cook Glover today at 7 p.m. Brazos Bookstore, 2421 Bissonnet.
