Join us for a reading from award-winning poets Kathleen Winter and Jenny Browne. The afternoon will also feature live music from two members of the Mojo-Folk band The Love Sprockets.

Kathleen Winter, recipient of the Ralph Johnston Fellowship, is the author of Nostalgia for the Criminal Past (Elixir Press), winner of the Antivenom Poetry Prize and the 2013 Texas Institute of Letters Bob Bush Memorial Award for a first book of poems. Her chapbook Invisible Pictures was published by Finishing Line Press. Winter was awarded writing fellowships by the James Merrill House; the Brown Foundation at the Dora Maar House, Ménerbes, France; Cill Rialaig Retreat, Ireland; Vermont Studio Center and the Prague Summer Program. She was a winner of the City of Phoenix Seventh Avenue Streetscape Public Art Project competition, as well as the 2014  Rochelle Ratner Memorial Prize from Marsh Hawk Press.  Winter’s poems have appeared in Tin House, AGNI, Poetry London, Gulf Coast, The New Republic, The Cincinnati Review and other journals and anthologies. Winter graduated with honors from the University of California, Davis, School of Law, and holds an MA in English Literature from Boston College and BA in English from the University of Texas at Austin.

Jenny Browne is the author of three collections of poems: At Once, The Second Reason, and Dear Stranger. Recent poems and essays have appeared in numerous venues, including American Poetry Review, Barrow Street, the New York Times, Tin House and Zocalo Public Square. A former James Michener Fellow at the University of Texas-Austin, she is the recipient of two Texas Writers League Fellowships and a 2012-13 NEA Literature Fellowship. For many years she worked as poet in residence for the Texas Commission on the Arts, and with the University of Iowa’s International Writers Program. She currently lives in downtown San Antonio, Texas, and teaches at Trinity University.

The Love Sprockets are a Mojo-Folk band from Austin, Texas. In 2013 a couple named Jahnavi and Addison rode their bicycles from Vermont to Texas, making music along the way. When they got there, they met Aaron Watson (Upright Bass) and Pete Van Dyck (Drums, Vocals). Now they play high energy, all-original songs that blend a variety of styles, ranging from foot stompin’ Bluegrass, rip-roarin’ Americana, heart-throbbing Soul, spirit-swelling Gospel, whiskey-drinkin’ Blues, and nap-in-the-sunshine Folk.
