Genesee Reading Series at Writers & Books – Tuesday, April 8th

GENESEE READING SERIES
Tuesday, April 8, 2014
Writers and Books
740 University Avenue
Rochester, NY 14607
7:30 pm, $3 members; $6 public

April showers bring … an exciting Genesee Reading Series program
featuring the accomplished, original, and thought-provoking writing of
two Rochester originals, Gregory Gerard and Tony Leuzzi.

TONY LEUZZI is an Associate Professor of English at Monroe Community College. His
second book of poems, Radiant Losses, won the New Sins Editorial Prize in 2009 and
was released the following year. In November 2012, BOA Editions released Passwords
Primeval, Leuzzi’s interviews with 20 American poets. His latest book of poems, The
Burning Door, was released by Tiger Bark Press in March 2014.

GREGORY GERARD’s writing has been recognized by Tiny Lights, The Stone Table
Review, and Geva Theater. His memoir, In Jupiter’s Shadow, (Infinity Publishing, 2009)
traces a McQuaid boy’s struggle with forbidden attraction. More recently, he’s launched a serial story on Amazon’s Kindle, The Martini Chronicles, which tracks the friendship
between a single gay man and a married straight woman. Each chapter comes with a
themed martini recipe, created (and quality tested!) by Gerard himself.
His teaching credits include a guest instructor stint at the U of R’s Scholars Creative
Writing Program and an annual offering of a Creative Writing series at Writers & Books.
In 2013, he received WAB’s Big Pencil Award for teaching excellence.
