1718 Reading Series features poet Megan Burns

I will be reading tonight at 7PM at the Columns Hotel on St. Charles Ave. as part of the 1718 Reading Series that is sponsored by Loyola University.

In this reading, I will attempt to link together the mysteries of Wuthering Heights, the lyrics of Bob Dylan and fathers. Also, there will be much made of disasters, earthworms, and two dozen species of birds. I will speak about the corpse and the Exquisite Corpse and diseases.

So, if any of these topics mildly interest you, then you should be there. I believe the Columns is haunted and of course, it is election day. So, there are also these things to consider and sway you.

In other news, there should be a fabulous bilingual reading of the poetry of Anna Akhmatova at the Gold Mine this Thursday. http://www.17poets.com/
