On December 18th, the book launch for Coldfront editor Steven Karl’s long awaited first book of poems, Dork Swagger (Coconut Books 2013), was held at Berl’s Poetry Shop in Brooklyn.

The newly opened poetry shop was filled with poets and fans eager to see Steven since his exodus from New York City and hear Dork Swagger read by the “Drk Hrt” himself.

Poets Dan Magers and Jamalieh Haley and musician Bill Riccini of Summer Fiction joined Steven onstage to commemorate the occasion, and Bianca Stone‘s artwork graced the walls.
