Hello to all of you,
It's been January and it's been real. But now the Multifarious Array is back and we are ready to knock your mittens off with some great poetry readings. Starting this Friday, 1/28, at 7 p.m. (sharp!).
Friday will be a truly special night. It is the NYC book release party for Travis Nichols's new poetry collection, See Me Improving (Copper Canyon Press).
We will be featuring a talent show by extraordinary artists out of their ordinary minds. Local dilettantes--including Steve Zultanski, Lauren Ireland, Jason Daniel Schwartz, Dugward Penelope, Leigh Stein, and more--will sing, dance, and showcase their beginner minds in an amateur revue of improvements.
The night ends with a reading from the new book by the author.
Here is some information about the man of the night: Travis Nichols is the author of two previous books, the prose poetry collection Iowa (Letter Machine Editions), and the novel Off We Go Into the Wild Blue Yonder (Coffee House Press). He is associate editor at the Poetry Foundation, as well as editor of the online magazine Weird Deer. He lives in Chicago.
