This Saturday : 9/26/09

Hello all! So the Poets House is throwing a big doozy this weekend! In past posts I have been a local going abouts informer, but have slacked through the summer. This seems really fantastic.

I am also on assignment to go (my professor for advanced poetry workshop, Ms. Meena Alexander, is reading). Also exciting - I've never seen Howe read.

Please come. It's free. It features Hunter College Faculty and we need more solidarity in the English Department!


here is the repost from poets.org:
