the year is newborn, the poets are dead

Remember that New Years resolution you made yesterday about taking in more cultural events in 2012? Well here's a chance to start the year off on the right foot:

The second instalment of the resurrected Dead Poets Reading Series is happening this Sunday (January 8th), from 3-5 PM at Project Space. It will feature:

Thomas Hardy (1840 - 1928), read by David Zieroth
Christina Rossetti (1830 - 1894), read by Diane Tucker
Stevie Smith (1902 - 1971), read by Miranda Pearson
Jack Spicer (1925 - 1965), read by Garry Thomas Morse
Edward Thomas (1878 - 1917), read by John Donlan

Entry is by donation, to cover the rental costs for the space.

We were standing-room only last time, so come early if you want to be sure of a seat. Oh, and Facebookers, you can do your Facebook things here. Remember the New Years resolution you made yesterday about inviting all your Facebook friends to more cultural events in 2012?

You may have noticed that David Zieroth was on the bill for the last reading, too. He couldn't make that one, as he fell ill. When I tried to organize an event with David back in 2010, he wasn't able to make that, either. Will he slip through my grasp a third time? You'll have to show up to find out!

p.s. Another great reading, featuring Vancouver's "Poetry Dogs" (Stephanie Bolster, Barbara Nickel, and Elise Partridge) is happening tomorrow night at the VPL. More info here.
