O night divine

Such times. A glorious night of poetry. Special thanks to Karen Schindler and Baseline Press (congrats on your beautiful new chapbooks), those poets who travelled from afar, Amanda Jernigan, Sandra Ridley, Shelly Harder, Lamees Al Ethari, to Kate Sutherland, Michael Gemar, and John DeJesus at Coach House, to all who came and held this space dear. Unforgettable.  knife | fork | book

The remarkable occasion when an evening accomplishes exactly what it set out to do. A seamless forty minutes of poetic interplay between AARON BOOTHBY, CANISIA LUBRIN, and KLARA DU PLESSIS, (a full, appreciative house, spellbound), meticulously crafted and hosted by du Plessis. Beautiful indeed.  knife | fork | book

Every once in a while, an event occurs that brings home simply, fully, exactly what it is you have set out to do, seeing it fully realized in an evening, unexpected, unforgettable. The launch of STANFORD CHEUNG‘s full-length debut, STRUCTURES FROM THE STILL (Akinoga Press, Baltimore) with JC BOUCHARD (Let This Be the End of Me. Hybrid Heaven, Montreal) was such a night. Thank you, poets.  knife | fork | book
