Riot Act Reading Series: a punk rock literary event


10,000 Fresh Voices | KFAI

Riot Act Reading Series is a monthly literary event that takes place at various Minneapolis and St. Paul bars. Co-hosted by punk poet Paul D. Dickinson and writer/poet Laura Brandenburg, the series has been going since 1998. Each host leads a team of four writers representing a variety of literary genres. Participants have included nationally renowned stand-up comedian Mary Mack, musician/writers Mark Mallman, Tim Piotrowski, and Laurie Lindeen, clothing designer/artist/writer Joan Vorderbruggen and more. Harkening back to Dickinson’s roots as a punk rock musician, Riot Act is a literary event with edginess and punch. Produced by Cyn Collins.
