The Georgia Review will celebrate the release of its summer 2014 issue with readings by poet Alice Friman, prose writer John Brown Spiers and poet Thibault Raoult July 18 at 7 p.m. at Ciné,
234 W. Hancock Ave.
Open free to the public, the event will include a collaborative poetry activity called an exquisite corpse, which is a parlor game where everyone is invited to contribute a line to a poem while only being allowed to see the directly preceding line. Complimentary snacks will be served, and beverages will be available for purchase through Ciné.
Friman, nationally known author of numerous collections and a regular contributor to The Georgia Review, has new work in the summer issue. Spiers and Raoult join the event as Review assistants to the editors-Spiers as the outgoing and Raoult as the incoming for 2014-2015. Both are associated with UGA’s doctoral creative writing program.
Copies of the new issue will be available for purchase at the event, as will select back issues at special sale prices. For more information, see www.thegeorgiareview.com or call 706-542-3481.
