I'll be back in Boston in a couple of weeks for work and to attend and host a reading at Grub Street. The featured reader is Frances McCue, whom I picked to win the 2011 National Book Prize in Poetry for her collection, The Bled. You should come! Here are the details:
Friday, February 10th, 6:30-8:30 pm, at Grub Street headquarters (160 Boylston Street, 4th Floor)
Join Frances McCue, winner of the 2011 Grub Street National Book Prize in Poetry for The Bled (Factory Hollow Press), for an evening of poetry and conversation. Frances will be visiting us from Seattle for the weekend as part of the national book prize festivities. At 6:30, Frances will read from her work and take your questions about the poems and about the craft of poetry in general. Following the reading, there will be a wine and cheese reception and Frances will be available to sign books. This event is free and open to the public.
You can read more about the book (and the two finalists) here.
