Splinter Event June 2010 en Los Ángeles

We at The Splinter Generation are excited to announce our newest reading event coming to Avenue 50 Studio Thursday June 24th at 7:30 pm. We will be listening to the literary stylings of performance poet Douglas Kearney reading from his book The Black Automaton (Fence Books), as well as Splinter contributors Erika Ayon (poetry), Antonia Crane (CNF), and Alan Stewart Carl (fiction). We are also excited to welcome musical guests David Gielan and L.A. band Oliver Future. As usual we promise great stories, music, cheese and cheep booze. Who can pass that up?


Douglas Kearney’s work as a poet, performer and librettist has been featured in many fine publications and venues in print, in-the-flesh and in digital code. His first full-length collection of poems, Fear, Some, was published in 2006 (Red Hen Press). His second manuscript, The Black Automaton, was chosen by Catherine Wagner for the National Poetry Series and will be published by Fence Books in November 2009. In 2008, he was honored with a Whiting Writers’ Award. He lives in the Valley with his family and teaches courses in African American poetry, opera and myth at California Institute of the Arts.

Antonia Crane lives in Los Angeles and has an MFA in Creative Writing from Antioch University. She's working hard on her memoir, “Stripped: Tales of a Sexual Outlaw.” Excerpts have been published in The Coachella Review and Black Clock Press. She has received scholarships from College of the Redwoods, Mills College, Antioch University and The Squaw Valley Community of Writers. She’s a free-lance journalist and feature columnist for The Rumpus at and is an editor of The Citron Review. You can check out her blog at

Alan Stewart Carl is a Texan writer of fiction and miscellany. His work has appeared or is forthcoming in Hayden?s Ferry Review, Mid-American Review, PANK, Monkeybicycle and other cool places. He is one of the fiction editors at Splinter Generation and will soon receive his MFA from Antioch University Los Angeles. He can usually be found in San Antonio raising two wild and beautiful children. Virtually, he can be found at

Erika Ayón emigrated from Mexico when she was five years old. She grew up in South Central Los Angeles and graduated from UCLA with a B.A. in English. She was selected as a 2009 Rosenthal Emerging Voices Fellow and has taught poetry to middle and high school students. She is currently working on a collection of poetry entitled Orange Lady, which deals with her childhood experience of selling oranges on the streets of Los Angeles with her family, in order to survive financially.

Fusing an eclectic mix of sounds through the acoustic rock medium, along the likes of such great artists as The Dave Mathews Band, Matt Nathanson, and John Mayer, David Gielan comes out swinging. As heard on STAR 98.7, David has been touted as “one of LA’s best kept secrets.” Each show offers something unique and is not to be missed.
