Odd Words at Odd Times February 8, 2012Posted by The Typist in books, literature, New Orleans, Odd Words, Poetry, Toulouse Street.
Due to my school schedule, I may not publish Odd Words first thing Thursday morning but just as likely late afternoon. In the future, I will include Thursday’s events in the preceding week’s column. That said, here are tomorrow’s events so you can be certain not to miss them.
& 17 Poets! kicks off its Spring season with a reading by Bill Lavender from his new book of poems MEMORY WING. I had the pleasure of hearing excerpts at the Black Widow salon a couple of months back and recommend it highly. Goldmine Saloon, 7:30 pm Thursday March 9, followed by open mike hosted by the peripetatic poetic passer by on Fortin Street Jimmy Ross.
& Garden District Books will feature Constance Adler reading and discussing her new memoir MY BAYOU, a “vividly described and intensely personal memoir which charts a personal and spiritual transformation along the fabled banks of Bayou St. John in New Orleans.” Garden District Book Shop, 5:30 pm Thursday March 9.
Look for the rest of the week’s events sometime tomorrow. I should be re-reading Emerson, Thoreau and Chaucer (oh, my!) but after cramming for today’s biology exam–which suffered an unfortunate collision with Krewe du Vieux–my Golgi apparatus has me all packed up for exocytosis into the bedroom.
