AWP, the behemoth of poetry conferences, is nearly upon us. This year poets descend on Los Angeles. Prepare yourselves… and mark your calendars for two exciting Nightboat Books off-site events.
You may feel compelled to split your body in twain to experience both of these events, because they are happening at virtually the same time, BUT we must advise against that. Choose wisely!
Friday April 1st @ 7pm
Nightboat, Wonder, Krupskaya @ The Poetic Research Bureau
A reading at the Poetic Research Bureau featuring three presses: Nightboat Books, Krupskaya and Wonder. With: Kate Durbin, Brenda Iijima, Syd Staiti, Orlando White, Mathew Timmons, Melissa Buzzeo, Josef Kaplan, Vi Khi Naoand Eric Sneathen.
