Friday, January 11th, 7pm: Dani Rado, Will Skinker, Cassandra Smith at the Deer Pile

Dear Smorgians,

Please come out and support the arts Friday, January 11th at the Deer Pile. Smorg is pleased to host Dani Rado, Will Skinker and Cassandra Smith, all hail Denver writers. C'est magnifique!

The Deer Pile is located above City o City (206 E 13th Ave). Delicious food and drinks available at City o City. Meet there.

Reading starts promptly at 7pm (to make way for the event following ours).

Come early for dinner or a drink and stay late.

Hope to see you there!


Dani Rado recently graduated from the University of Denver's creative writing program and currently is an assistant professor at Johnson & Wales University. She's had works published in Harpur PalateMochilaReviewSNReview5th Wednesday, and Clackamas Literary Review, among others.

Will Skinker was born & raised in Marshall Virginia, then moved to Portland OR, and then to San Francisco CA, and then to Denver CO. Auguste Press published his book Mascara in 2007, and Lew Gallery Editions published his small book Feed My Lambs in 2011. He attempts to climb mountains for fun and is writing a long non-fiction work-in-progress about his mountaineering adventures titled We Eat Distance,  two chapters of which have been published. His poems appear and disappear in journals here and there and this makes him smile. He moved to Denver in July of 2012 with his wife Yolanda and their two cats. He works for Adam's Camp in Centennial CO, a non-profit organization that runs summer camps for developmentally disabled children and their families. 

Cassandra Smith is a visual artist and poet. She works as an editor and book designer for Omnidawn Publishing. She would like to be a museum of lost objects but for now this is only an internet: She has degrees. She has fire. She lives somewhere in the middle.
