San Francisco-based Performance Poet Daphne Gottlieb stitches together the ivory tower and the gutter just using her tongue. She is the author and editor of nine books, most recently the poetry book 15 Ways to Stay Alive. She is the author of the poetry books Kissing Dead Girls, Final Girl, Why Things Burn and Pelt, and as the graphic novel Jokes and the Unconscious with artist Diane DiMassa.
Cheryl Maddalena is a mother, psychologist, arts organizer, and lapsed engineer who has been performing poetry for more than ten years. She has graced the National Poetry Slam Finals stage both as a poet (2004) and as a backup singer (2009), and has been National Haiku Champion as well. Cheryl’s work has been called “hilarious,” “heartfelt,” and “brutal” – but not all at the same time.
GHOSTS & PROJECTORS is a poetry reading series curated by poet Megan Williams that brings together the page, slam, experimental, lyrical, cowboy, etc poets that all live in Idaho yet never seem to be invited to the same readings, connects community-based audiences with a broad range of established and local poets, and connects local and non-local poets by giving them the opportunity to share the stage.
Hyde Park Books is an independently owned and operated new and used bookstore that has delivered mystery, intrigue, and intellectual delight to Boise’s North End neighborhood for twenty-seven years.
GHOSTS & PROJECTORS is made possible by generous funding from the Boise City Department of Arts & History and Boise State University’s Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Writing Program.
