ANIMAL FARM is NYC’s destination for the newest and best satirical and/or critical writing in any genre. On Tuesday, June 16, we are thrilled to welcome RANDALL HORTON, SHEILA McCLEAR, CHELSEA G. SUMMERS, JONATHAN W. GRAY, and TOBI HASLETT. We’re at OVER THE EIGHT, 594 Union Ave. in Williamsburg (L to Bedford or G to Lorimer/Metropolitan) and start at 8 pm.

BE THERE! And commune with us on Facebook and Twitter.

RANDALL HORTON, originally from Birmingham, AL now resides in Harlem, NY. Randall is the recipient of the Gwendolyn Brooks Poetry Award, the Bea Gonzalez Poetry Award and most recently a National Endowment of the Arts Fellowship in Literature. Triquarterly/Northwestern University Press is the publisher of his latest poetry collection Pitch Dark Anarchy, which was published in 2013. Augury Books will publish his memoir, Hook, in fall of 2015. Most recently Randall edited Julianne Malveaux’s Striving and Striving: 365 Facts in Black Economic History, which received a NAACP Image Award Nomination in Nonfiction Literature.

SHEILA McCLEAR has been a staff reporter at the New York Daily News, the New York Post, and Gawker. She has also been published in the New York Times, the Daily Beast, and elsewhere. Her book, The Last of the Live Nude Girls, was published in 2011. She is currently working on fiction of various types.

A recovering academic and a former stripper, CHELSEA G. SUMMERS writes almost exclusively about sex. A columnist for Adult Magazine, Chelsea’s work has appeared in New York Magazine, VICE, Nerve, the Hairpin, and wherever your finest salacious prose can be found.

JONATHAN W. GRAY learned about pastiche from Alan Moore, genre from Frank Miller, allusion from Rakim and intertextuality from Public Enemy. His scholarly decorum derives in equal parts from playing basketball in the streets and from holding the floor at his local comic shop. He teaches literature at John Jay College and has probably lived in Brooklyn longer than you.

TOBI HASLETT is a writer living in New York. His work has appeared online at Artforum, Boston Review, n+1, and elsewhere.

PATRICK W. GALLAGHER is the Host of Animal Farm (HOAF). His work has appeared in the New York Times, n+1, Vol. 1 Brooklyn, Mr. Beller’s Neighborhood, and elsewhere and he holds a PhD in Comparative Literature from NYU. Ask him about his novel, Pollen.
