Stan Apps is a writer. His books include The World as Phone Bill (essays from Combo), God's Livestock Policy (poems from Les Figues), and This Club Will Have Anyone (poem from Gauss PDF). Stan is currently living in New York and attending NYU Law School. Previous to that he was a Los Angeles poet, before that he was from Waco, Texas, and prior to that he was born and lived in Toronto, Canada. In the long term, Stan would like to write a science fantasy, a comedy of manners, a memoir, an occult conspiracy novel, and a legal thriller, and, in the interests of time, he would like them all to be the same book. Stan blogs here.

In the Gallery at R&F:

Intersections, is a solo exhibition of works by visiting artist Lorraine Glessner. Lorraine has a background as a textile, interior and graphic designer. She has profound interest in maps and geology which has inspired her to explore how the earth, the body and the grid intersect.

There will be an opening reception on Saturday, August 6th, 5-7pm, and a gallery talk at 5pm. The exhibit runs through September 17th, 2011.
