Poets in Need Benefit @ SPT 10/20

Poets In Need Benefit at Small Press Traffic
Friday, October 20, 2006 at 7:30 p.m.

Small Press Traffic is pleased to host a reading and reception benefiting Poets In Need’s Philip Whalen Memorial Grants.

Featured readers are PIN Board members Norman Fischer, Lyn Hejinian, and Michael Rothenberg.

Norman Fischer’s books include Slowly But Dearly from Chax Press.

Lyn Hejinian’s books include The Fatalist from Omnidawn.

Michael Rothenberg is the editor of Philip Whalen’s Selected Poems and Collected Poems.

Leslie Scalapino’s books include Zither & Autobiography from Wesleyan UP.

Poets In Need is a non-profit organization providing emergency assistance to poets who have an established presence in the literary community as innovators in the field and a substantive body of published work. Assistance is given only in cases of current financial need that is in excess of and unrelated to the recipient’s normal economic situation and that is the result of recent emergency (due, for example, to fire, flood, eviction, or a medical crisis).

Refreshments will be available. All of this evening's proceeds will benefit Poets in Need.
