In other news: 
17 Poets! Literary and Performance Series starts back up Feb. 9th with a reading and book signing by Bill Lavender from his new book Memory Wing (Black Widow Press).

We have a fantastic line up of poets coming to read this season at 17 Poets! Dave will be sending out the announcement for the season via our email list soon. If you want to join our list, you can go to our website and fill out the join our email list form. 

The next issue of Entrepôt, a double issue, will also be available Feb. 9 at 17 Poets!
as well as available online from 
and at select book stores. 

And here is my book recommendation of the day: Richard Froude's newest collection The Passenger from Skylight Press came in the mail. Not only does it have one of the best covers of 2012, but right in line with Froude's previous collection Fabric, this book weaves lines, words and time round and round into a skein of complex memories and remembrances, some yours, some Froude's. The title refers to you, and Froude is your guide taking you into the field of mathematical impossibilities and traipsing into the auras of those once inhabited by the likes of Prévert and Artaud. It's a fantastic journey: you will need to wing your eyes and hold on tight.
