Two options for your Wednesday night:

Peter Gizzi at the poetry project. His new book (below) The Outernationale just published w/ Wesleyan University Press. I have read his other books and chapbooks and intend to buy this too. I suggest you also buy Some Values of Landscape and Weather his last title.


Amy King also has a reading on Wednesday. Details TBA.
This is the cover of her new book:

The National Arts Club presents

A CELEBRATION OF HAIKU AND BASEBALL WITH BILLY COLLINS

Former poet laureate of the United States and bestselling author
Billy Collins will read from and talk about his recent book of haiku,
"She Was Just Seventeen." Former president of the Haiku Society of
America Cor van den Heuvel will then read and discuss haiku from his
new book "Baseball Haiku" (published by W.W. Norton and co-edited
with Nanae Tamura), and three of the featured poets in the book--Alan
Pizzarelli, Ed Markowski, and Brenda Gannam--will read their baseball
haiku.

Wine reception to follow.
