Encores and Ovations!

When is the last time you saw a poet get an encore or gave a poet an encore? I never have – that is till Wednesday night when John Giorno blew our minds.


“Demon in the Details”


And last night nearly 300 people filled the sanctuary for John Ashbery who commanded a standing ovation and then autographed books for hours.


Thanks to all who have been part of the past two nights at the Project. It has been heady and full of heart. It’s not too late to get in on the festivities. Tonight we celebrate Jack Spicer and My Vocabulary Did This To Me, edited by Kevin Killian and Peter Gizzi, who will both be here!
