Massive Week(end) for Poetry

The schedule for the full Welcome to Boog City Festival is now available online here. The readings on Saturday and Sunday at Unnameable Books is crazy including friends, Geoffrey Olsen (Sat.) and Veronica Wong(Sunday).
Saturday, September 12, from 1pm-6pm (or some part thereof) to celebrate and commemorate the first nine years of Fence Magazine!

We're suggesting folks bring a yoga mat or something else to sit on out in the yard as we're expecting a big turn-out!

Also including a save the date--Friday, October 2 6:30pm--for another Garden Party (also at 381 Park Place, #1), featuring Hoa Nguyen (all the way up from Austin, TX) and Anselm Berrigan.
There's also Mark Bibbins' book release party on Saturday night and Earshot on Friday night:
Children of EARSHOT! Your time has come.

Please join us, one and all, for our Fall '09 season kick-off event this Friday, September 11th, at a new starting time of 7:30 PM! We'll be at the fabulous Rose Live Music in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and our line-up will chase away those post-summertime blues.

This time around, we're featuring poets JAMES BELFLOWER (author of the new collection Commuter from Instance Press) and CLAIRE DONATO (recent Brooklyn transplant and author of the chapbook Someone Else's Body). And our trio of MFA writers is the collective icing on the literary cake.

As always, you get all this, plus a free drink, for a measly five clams. No inflation here.

Your pal,

P.S. Don't forget to follow us on Twitter:
