Cup and Pen Small Press Reading Series
presents
Calamari Press
With readings by
Michael Peters
and
Be Blank Consort

Wednesday November 7th, 2007
8:30pm-10pm
Free as a bird!

November is celebrate-your-local-experimental-poetry-hero and we're showing solidarity by inviting the soul-saving Be Blank Consort to perform solo readings of text poetry as well as group performances of collaborative sound and visual poetry. The night is lead by core members John M. Bennett, K.S. Ernst, Scott Helmes, Sheila E. Murphy, and Michael Peters. This not-to-be-missed performance will be followed by the you'd-have-to-not-be a fan-of-multi-media-spectaculars to-miss-this performance by Michael Peters reading from the Vaast Bin (Calamari, 2007).

Small press enthusiasts, littérateurs and zine-heads unite! Come to listen actively, converse heartily and drink organic beverages (now including wine and cheese) slowly with the Cup and Pen Small Press Reading Series. Cup and Pen, a twice-monthly small press reading series in the back room of Think Coffee, hopes to create a series in which readers discover new presses to support and introduce emerging writers to publishers. Huzzah! Think Coffee also rents 300 sweet square feet of recently renovated the café basement to groups of 25 at $15/hr in the daytime and $20/hr in the evening and on weekends; perfect for round tables of tomorrow's thinkers today!

as much as i support readings and small presses, i believe it is a bad precedent for us to be posting about readings given that most of the people on the blog are not in new york.
