Paul D. Dickinson

Sept. 16
6 p.m.
Literary, Poetry

With dark humor and metaphors linking engines, appliances, and fast-food chains to the brutal struggle for survival, Cars, Bars, and Electric Guitars, Paul D. Dickinson’s new book of poetry, offers a gritty melancholy. It’s filled with stories of unrequited love, open roads, and rock ’n’ roll. Dickinson is not afraid to show his vulnerability as he flexes his earthy wit. This Friday, he will host a reading to celebrate the release of the book at the Turf Club.
