Reading this Wednesday, 2/8!

Looking for some fun and mental stimulation? Be at the Poe Room on the second floor of Pratt Library’s Central branch 6:30 Wednesday for an evening of poetry and conversation. Clarinda Harriss (BhB’s director) and Bruce Sager (winner of the City Lit Project 2010 Harriss Poetry Prize) will be reading and discussing their work.  Clarence Brown, whose own book NEEDS is creating quite a stir, should also be in attendance.

While you’re at the gorgeous Central Library, check out the street-level display windows. Fancy getting your own poetry shown there? They’re running a poetry contest through February 21, and the winner will also get their work published in the Little Patuxent Review and read at the next CityLit Festival. Not too shabby!
