Hi Sommer,

Just wondering if you saw this in the NYT. It's in a Q&A called "Answers About Poetry in Brooklyn."

Hi, Michael, I’m a Milwaukee-based poet, and I often visit my two daughters, who both live in Brooklyn. Whenever possible, I would like to read my poetry there, but I’m not aware of the venues in Brooklyn.

The reading series at Pete’s Candy Store in Williamsburg remains vibrant and diverse. It’s a chic bar, but it affords a measure of respect to its readers and audiences: you don’t you have to compete with sports on the television, or with the people who came just for the food and drinks.
