10/25: Timothy Donnelly, Lynn Melnick, Mark Bibbins, and Tanya Olson

Dear Poetry People,

Ever get the feeling that something you love has happened before?

I mean, who is to say that this whole living thing isn't just some grand ol' remix?

Here at The Multifarious Array, we sometimes do things once and they are so right we need to do them again. Our reading this Friday is just that, with some extra wonderfulness. 

This Friday, 10/25, at 7 pm, we will feature readings by:

Timothy Donnelly!
Lynn Melnick!
Mark Bibbins!
Tanya Olson!

(Sound familiar? This reading is a remix of a past Multifarious Array reading in May PLUS Tanya Olson.)

We are very excited about this.

We assume you are, too. 

Check out what Facebook has to say about this Friday's reading here.

See you there,
Dorothea Lasky
