David Lehman and Josh Russell read at Kavarna tonight

The latest installment of  the Solar Anus reading series goes down at Kavarna tonight. New York native David Lehman will be reading poetry and Georgia-based Josh Russell will read short fiction.

The prolific David Lehman has two books out this year - a collection of poetry titled Yeshiva Boys and a non-fiction volume about Jewish songwriters titled A Fine Romance - as well as the latest installment of The Best American Poetry series, which he initiated and continues to edit. You can check him out reading a poem called "The Double Agent" below.

Josh Russell is the author of Yellow Jack and two forthcoming novels - My Bright Midnight and A True History of the Captivation, Transport to Strange Lands, & Deliverance of Hannah Guttentag. He was raised in Normal, Illinois and lives in Newnan, Ga.

Solar Anus is, hands down, the best name for a reading series in Atlanta. Local author Jamie Iredell hosts the roving series, which will conclude 2009 with a reading at Beep Beep Gallery this Friday, November 20 featuring Kate Greenstreet, Brigitte Byrd, and Scott Wilkerson.
