Plan 99 Poetry Cabaret
with Jennifer Still, Nick Thran
and Sandra Ridley

Hosted by David O’Meara
"Sandra Ridley's long poetic sequences document the isolating effects of institutional incarceration with an unflinching vocabulary of treatment and “cure.” Lines and figures here move with a scalpeled exactness. Moments of lucidity, self-rescue in the form of a “blanched calm,” come to the reader as a benison
