An afternoon of great poetry presented in collaboration with the Plan 99 Reading Series featuring: Anita Lahey whose second collection, Spinning Side Kick, is a hard-knuckled look at the other half. These lively poems mix a girl-about-town cockiness with an all-too-rare emotional honesty about men, love, and relationships; David Groulx, whose latest collection, A Difficult Beauty, is as cutting and brilliant as glass shards, offering glimpses of the anger, pain and lost beauties of his ancestors; and Chris Jennings, whose long-awaited debut Occupations contains poems linked at their core by a preoccupation with the ways objects or moments become charged with meaning, making the most ordinary things touchstones and reliquaries of other lives.
