Sarabande Books brings poets Mark Yakich and Andrea Cohen to 21c tonight
Oh man! Has it really been a whole month since we’ve talked about poetry pants? Zip those suckers up and let’s ride! Tonight, Monday, August 27th, Sarabande Books will host poets Mark Yakich and Andrea Cohen as part of this month’s 21c Reading Series.
“Tonic” is a very interesting word.  I think about things like this.  As a noun, it doesn’t get much the same kind of love as other more exotic parts of speech: adjectives enjoy a spicy existence adding nuance; verbs employ a springboard for life living.  But so...

Sarabande Books brings poets James Allen Hall and Ada Limon to 21c Reading Serie
The Red Penguins strike again! The Sarabande Books hosts another round of poets at tonight’s 21c Reading Series. The words will flow this evening starting at 7:30pm.
We are so close.  Hour by hour and day by unbearable day, the march towards Fall and respite from this swampish, sun-laden drudgery of Summer has a tangible end.  The heavy, timberwolf skies of Autumn cast a cool, gray light at the end of this long, blazing tunnel, and my languishing...

Sarabande Books presents the Four Short Story Writers of the Apocalypse at 21c
Grab a shovel and prepare thy shelter! Sarabande Books presents a reading of reckoning at this month’s 21c Reading Series with the Four Short Story Writers of the Apocalypse. The book bomb drops tonight, Monday, May 21st, at 7:30pm.
The end is nigh.  Quickly approaching on swift wings, the looming Apocalypse breathes its wild, gypsy breath into the shivers of our spines.  We cannot escape the fierce plunging of hooves into the Earth, the raw, iron might of Death’s steely scythe.  Humble pawns in the dance...

Sarabande Books presents poets Nikky Finney and Bruce Smith tonight at 21c
Round out National Poetry Month at 21c Museum Hotel as Sarabande Books presents the poets Nikky Finney and Bruce Smith tonight at 7:30pm.
So.  Now I’ve followed in the footsteps of the great and troubled creative minds, taking my turn in preparation for my slowly simmering magnum opus.  And while I flexed the limits of sanity, my little Books corner has sat silent.  Instead, I wrote some very nice poetry and...
