A sparkling occasion from start to finish, host PARKER MENZIMER‘s GROUP HUDDLE Reading Series at TOPOS BOOKSTORE & CAFE this past Wednesday included an exquisitely hand-folded chapbook of the evening’s readers gifted to all in attendence. Such a pleasure to share the stage with poets DAVID BRADFORD and ANDREW DURBIN (who treated us with an excerpt from his soon-to-be-released MacArthur Park). Thanks to Parker and Anny from TOPOS (a haven in Ridgewood) for the delights. (Also pictured: Spoonbill)
Hoa and I met in the washroom at a CAConrad workshop four or five years ago. When we opened the shop, she asked if there was anything special I wanted to see happen, and I said for my 58th birthday, I’d like to launch a new chapbook and read with CA. Here we are. KIRBY
