LARISSA SHMAILO & JULIAN TAUB Traverse the Labyrinth of Language at the Jujo! Sunday 4/29 6:00pm until 8:00pm JujoMukti Tea Lounge, 211 East 4th Street (bet. Aves. A & B), New York, NY This week at the Jujo, we feature two poets who think and write in more than one language, and seek understanding in the places they cross over and the places where they meet a dead end. LARISSA SHMAILO's work has appeared in Gargoyle, the Brooklyn Rail, Barrow Street, Drunken Boat, Fulcrum,The Unbearables Big Book of Sex, and the Penguin anthology Words for the Wedding. Her books of poetry are In Paran (BlazeVOX [books]), the chapbook A Cure for Suicide (Cervena Barva Press), and the e-book Fib Sequence (Argotist Ebooks); her poetry CDs are The No-Net World and Exorcism, available through iTunes and other digital distributors. Her translation of Alexei Kruchenych's libretto, Victory over the Sun, is forthcoming from Cervena Barva Press. She blogs at larissashmailo.blogspot.com. JULIAN TAUB is a poet, blogger, journalist, and occasional linguist. When he’s not trying to explain nanotechnology to the masses or following leads on twitter, you can him in a random park, writing a random line of poetry, or having existential conversations with strangers. He like long walks on concrete, unique perspectives, Irish bars, and of course, Tea…. Located in a comfortable, handsome space in the East Village serving enriching teas from around the globe. $5.00 Admission (Admission price may be applied to the purchase of a tea or coffee of equal or lesser value. Check out the fabulous menu of teas on the lounge’s Facebook page.) Directions: Subways F, M (2nd Avenue & Houston); 6 (Astor Place; 8th St and 4th Ave.); Bus 14A from Union Square (3rd St stop and Ave. A). This will be an "unplugged" open. Hosted by David Lawton.
