The Skirt Tasters are a loose collective of musicians backing up Jerome Crooks as he reads his poetry. On this particular night he will not be reading his own poetry but from Danielle Steele's "Love:Poems" and will be backed up by guitar, lap steel and perhaps mystery guest/ instruments.

Kristofer Collins is the Books Editor of Pittsburgh Magazine. He runs Low Ghost Press. He also owns Desolation Row Records and manages Caliban Bookshop in Oakland. His most recent chapbook is "Last Call" published by Speed & Briscoe in 2010.

Renée Alberts' poetry and visual art have appeared in print, dance
performances, live radio shows and at least one tattoo. As They Fall,
a collection of short poems from her Detail a Day Project, was
published by Lilliput Broadsides in 2012. She is author of the
collection, No Water and editor of Natural Language: Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh Sunday Poetry and Reading Anthology, a collection of writers featured in the series she founded. She guest hosts WESA 90.5 FM's Prosody and moderates the Pittsburgh Literary Calendar.

Jason Baldinger has been published in The New Yinzer and Shattered Wig Press. He is author of two books of poetry, The Whiskey Rebellion (with Jerome Crooks) published in 2011 by Six Gallery Press, and The Lady Pittsburgh on Speed and Briscoe Press which is the reason for this particular shindig.
