Karl Gartung grew up in Liberal, Kansas (an actual place and a real contradiction). Thirty years ago he founded Woodland Pattern Book Center with Anne Kingsbury and Karl Young. Fortunately, that center continues as an outlet for new literature, art and music, a point of contact for the writers of Wisconsin with their contemporaries, both national and international. He has  also been a truck driver and union steward at UPS-CSI, for the past 32 years.  In 2008, his first book, Now That Memory Has Become So Important, came out from MWPH. Gartung’s strongest influences as a writer include the Objectivists, Paul Metcalf, Dick Higgins and Karl Young.

Karl will read with the assistance of Kate Greenstreet, who read for us back in September.
