Uncharted Books

DUETDUET, a pitymilk press publication, is an experiment in blind dates and/or happy accidents publishing equal amounts of poetry from two separate authors (perhaps strangers), oriented in opposite directions. The results are curiously perfect hot air balloons. 

Join us for a reading featuring DUETDEUT vol 4 contributors Dolly Lemke and Kelly Lorraine Andrews. Both Lemke and Andrews will lead us around the empty apartment inside ourselves, admiring the trinkets, the flowers, the growing tide in the back of our throats. Joining DUETDUET 4 contributors will be Chicago's illustrious Maggie Queeney.

Dolly Lemke lives and works in Chicago. She is the author of three chapbooks: O Town Heights (DoubleCross Press, 2012), I’m so into you (plumberries press, 2013), and Wyoming (dancing girl press, 2018). She founded and co-curated of The Dollhouse Reading Series from 2011-2016 and also co-founded the online poetry journal PINWHEEL where she serves as Poetry Editor.
