One Year Anniversary Show

Hey! It's time for the One Year Anniversary of the Powell's North Reading Series!

Happy Birthday, Powell's! We're throwing a party and would like to invite you and all of your friends to a celebration of the highest accord, including featured readers Peter O'Leary and John Tipton, AND a selection of readers from our past 12 months. The event promises poetry, fiction, merriment, and nostalgia. It will begin at 7:00.

Peter O'Leary is the author of a book of poetry, Watchfulness (Spyten Duyvil) as well as a book of criticism, Gnostic Contagion: Robert Duncan & the Poetry of Illness (Wesleyan). As literary executor for the Ronald Johnson Estate, he has edited two collections of Johnson's poetry: To Do As Adam Did: Selected Poems (Talisman House) and The Shrubberies (Flood Editions). He also co-edits the literary magazine LVNG.

John Tipton's book of poetry, Surfaces, was published by Flood Editions in 2004. His poems have appeared in LVNG, Poetry New York, Nedge, and elsewhere. He is also the founder and director of Chicago Poetry Project
