Am trying desperately, tho it will likely not happen due to personal tragedy + state budget cuts (personal tragedy), to have Mark Wallace & Lorraine Graham read at Evergreen once again. They've been integral to PRESS as a series, reading/performing work at our first large conference in 2008, both incredibly important writers to me (and to many of you). Luckily the two plus fine poet Kevin Sampsell will be hosted this week by Tangent, one of the stalwart Portland reading series. PLEASE GO if you are in or around the Portland area. This evening will be a treat.
