Dear Friends,

Pilvax invites you to our first Pilvax Garden 
Party, to be held at Kértem at Olof Palme Sétány 
3 in the City Park. The evening will begin with 
readings of poetry and prose by three 
up-and-coming writers of American and Hungarian 
origin: Gábor Gyukics, Péter Péli, and Chad 
Faries, back on Hungarian soil. The readings will 
be followed by the American/Hungarian bluegrass 
band Szuterén. Homemade British sausages by 
Wilkinson's Sausages will be for sale from the 
barbeque throughout.

Tuesday, July 15th.

Readings begin promptly at 6:30

Concert from 8

Sausages all night.

Chad Faries has published short stories, poetry, 
and essays in Exquisite Corpse, Mudfish, New 
American Writing, Barrow Street and Pilvax, among 
others.  His volume of poetry, The Border Will Be 
Soon, was published by Emergency Press in 2006. 
He is a former Fulbright Fellow in Budapest.

Gábor G. Gyukics is a Hungarian-American poet and 
literary translator. Thanks to an Arts Link 
grant, he started an Open Reading series in 
Hungary in 1999. Gábor has translated works from 
Attila József, Attila Balogh, Paul Auster, and 
Ira Cohen. His latest work is Lepkék vitrinben, 
released by Fekete Sas Publishing in 2006. He has 
published five books of original poetry and  six 
books of poetry translation.

Born in 1971, Péter Péli grew up in Hungary. He 
started writing poetry in Hungarian, but after 
two years at an international high school in 
South Wales he switched to English. He spent the 
1990s in the US, studying Math at Harvard and Art 
History at the University of Chicago. Inspired by 
ergophobia he traveled extensively in Europe, the 
US and in Asia. His first book of English 
language poetry-toy gravity-appeared in 2000. His 
second book-let's let the cold out of our 
lukewarm-is just released. He resides in Budapest 
and believes that if you live by the road you die 
by the road Š
