Cooper Wilhelm presents DUMBHEART/STUPIDFACE

12/02/2017 - 7:00pm

This event takes place in our Brooklyn store.

"Good love stories aren’t interesting to read about. Thankfully, DUMBHEART/STUPIDFACE provides a wonderful reprieve; Wilhelm writes the brutal truths of what it means to love someone with a detached ferocity generally observed in nature, as when a tiger devours a deer. And it is as exciting to watch." —Bijan Stephen.

We'll be celebrating this wonderful collection will at WORD with wine and a reading from Wilhelm and fellow authors Joanna C. Valente, Paul Stone, Katie Longofono, and Omotara James.

Cooper Wilhelm is the author of Klaatu Verata Nikto (Ghost City Press/2016), a microchapbook about necromancy and breakups, and of Swine Songs (Business Bear Press/2018). He writes poems on postcards and mails them to strangers he looks up in phone books at PoetryAndStrangers.com and was until recently the host of Into the Dark, a show about witchcraft on Radio Free Brooklyn. He tweets @cooperwilhelm.
