Trouble and Hope: A DVD Anthology

Poetry Atlanta Presents... Trouble and Hope, a DVD anthology of poets in performance and conversation, will have its premiere tomorrow night at a special screening in conjunction with Georgia Center for the Book. The film will screen at 7:15 p.m. at the Decatur Library, 215 Sycamore St. There is no admission charge and DVDs will be for sale for $15.

My contribution is "Wonder Woman" and I'm also interviewed about Atlanta's poetry and spoken word scene.

Performers include: Amena Brown, Mr. Boom, Chris Chandler, Theresa Davis, Travis Denton, Mike Dockins, Rupert Fike, Karen G., Jon Goode, Beth Gylys, Lady Hardin, Kodac Harrison, Karen Head, Collin Kelley, BasiKnowledge, Alice Lovelace, Opal Moore, Bryan Pattillo, Randy Prunty, Tania Rochelle, Tavares Stephens, Sharan Strange, Natasha Trethewey, Dan Veach, Megan Volpert, Karen Wurl, Gypsee Yo and a special tribute to the late Shannon Leigh.

Filmed at locations around Atlanta, including Java Monkey Coffee House, Composition Gallery and the Decatur Book Festival, the DVD will be for sale at shops in Atlanta and online at beginning this weekend. For directions to the library and more info, visit Georgia Center for the Book.
