Join us tonight (Thursday, March 23rd) for an evening of readings from three fantastic poets: Erin Mouré, Chus Pato, and Stephen Collis!
Erin Mouré will be launching her new collection of selected poems, Planetary Noise, and Stephen Collis will read from his latest book, Once in Blockadia. Chus Pato will read from Flesh of Leviathan, which Mouré has translated into English from Galician. Pato and Mouré will also both read from their collaboratively-authored Secession/Insecession.
