Hello friends and poets,
How are you?
How am I? Um. This week is like really stressing me out, man.
Oh well. Let's let the stress subside while we chill at Pete's Candy Store and listen to some cool tunes. By tunes, yes, I do mean poetry.
First of all, it's a book party! Let's celebrate!
Michael Robbins' new book, Alien vs. Predator, is just out from Penguin! Carley Moore's new book, The Stalker Chronicles, is just out from Farrar, Straus, and Giroux! Angelo Nikolopoulos' new book, Obscenely Yours, just won the Kinereth Gensler Award and is forthcoming from Alice James Books next year!
If that's not reason enough. But if you need another, then, I'll say: it's just fun to be together! A poetry reading is just fun to go to.
Invite your fun Facebook friends here: https://www.facebook.com/events/299519466785035/?notif_t=plan_user_joined Bios and pics below.
Fun, let's have it.
See you Friday.
