1. Whoa! I just heard Gary Snyder will be reading at the Barnes & Noble in Union Square (17th St. around Park Avenue) here in New York City Friday November 8 at 7:30. I’m really psyched, as I’ve never seen him read before. To other New Yorkers out there: this is not likely to be often repeated, so don’t miss the chance.
2. This is nowhere near as cool as the above announcement, but I’ve got more details about the Web Writers reading I’ll be participating in on November 16th. It’s called POISON: WRITERS ON THE WEB and it’s at 3:30 pm at the Hudson Park Branch of the New York Public Library (66 Leroy Street, between 7th Ave. and Hudson). This is likely to be often repeated, but I hope some of you can come anyway.
