PSA@ New School University
This should be pretty good. I quite like Jay Hopler- his book, Green Squall is one of my favorite recent releases from a new poet. My only complaint is that there isn't a day by day break-down of readers since I won't be going on Thursday. My friend, Nicole, is having a wine-tasting event at her house so I'll be up to my gills in vino- tsk tsk tsk
