I'm off to SF tomorrow.

In between seeing friends and having various tasty things to eat, I'll be at these two events. I'm reading in the first event--and I'll keep to my two minute limit, I promise. In the meantime, I need to find a mask to wear. Something either very ornate and corny or very gruesome and corny.

SPD SF Poetry Spectacular

Sunday, Dec 28th at the Forum at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts on 701 Mission Street between 3rd and 4th Streets in the San Francisco Poetry Spectacular, otherwise known as the MLA off-site reading. The event starts at 7:00 and will go until 10:00. The location is walking distance from the hotels. Attached are a map and poster for the event. Postcards with the map will be available at SPD booth #517. The list of readers is on our site http://www.spdbooks.org/root/pages/sfspectacular.asp.

In the spirit of San Francisco and for extra thrills, we ask that you wear a mask to the event. Of course, your own reading will be mask-optional.

We look forward to seeing & hearing you at the San Francisco Poetry Spectacular, sponsored by Small Press Distribution and the Poetry Foundation.

The Spectacular is free, ADA accessible, and open to the public. Please invite everyone!
