Pacific Standard Bar, Brooklyn

Please join us to hear poetry readings from (and enjoy a beverage with) Chris Martin ’00 and Ted Mathys ’01.

Ted Mathys graduated from Carleton with a degree in international relations. Between tippling in the shadow of the Berlin Wall, camping on the Great Wall of China, and gluing his over-determined comps to the stairwell wall in Willis, he began writing poems. His first collection, Forge, was published by Coffee House Press in 2005, and a second book, Surface to Air, will appear from Coffee House in 2009. A recipient of fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the New York Foundation for the Arts, he now lives in Brooklyn.

Since getting his start as a rapper during Reed Wallsmith sets at the Cave in the late 1990s, Chris Martin has lived in San Francisco, St. Paul, and Brooklyn, where he now resides. He is the author of American Music, the 2006 winner of the Hayden Carruth Award selected by C.D. Wright. He is proud to be part of the Carleton Renaissance, including Karl Krause, Ted Mathys, Amanda Nadelberg and countless others.

Directions: Pacific Standard ( is located at 82 Fourth Avenue (St. Mark’s and Bergen), just steps away from the B/D/N/Q/R/2/3/4/5/LIRR trains at Atlantic/Pacific, and a little farther away from the C/F/G trains.
