Chris Ludovici & Francis Daulerio

Join us for an afternoon of great fiction from two Philly authors - Chris Ludovici, author of The Minors, and Francis Daulerio, author of If and When We Wake.

Chris Ludovici has published articles in The Princeton Packet and online at Cinedelphia and Cleaver. In 2009, he won the Judith Stark awards in fiction and drama. His short story "Daisy" was published in the 2013 issue of Peregrine, the print journal of the University of Pennsylvania Creative Writing Program and in Cleaver Magazine. He lives in Pennsylvania with his wife, son, and too many cats.

Francis Daulerio was born in a small Pennsylvania suburb in 1986, and has led a fairly quiet life. A music fanatic, his decade of experience as a singer and songwriter brought him to poetry where he found himself captivated by the writings of Brautigan, Kerouac, and Niedecker. After graduating from West Chester University with a degree in English and Secondary Education, Francis married his high school sweetheart and began teaching English in a Chester County high school. He later enrolled at Arcadia University where he received an MFA in Creative Writing with a concentration in poetry. Francis currently teaches English and Creative Writing in Chester County, PA. He lives in the woods with his wife, dog, cat, and a small herd of deer. He spends any free time outside and is a sucker for a good single malt.
