we love our audience

I have to read poetry in front of a bunch of people today. I am scared. I have to look at what I'm reading a little later to make sure it is finished. well it is not finished but it's already too long so I have to excerpt and see if there was anything I wanted to add at the last minute. it's not always a good idea to read poetry that you've just written but sometimes it is ok. I will just have to be as objectively judgmental as possible.


GHOSTING ATOMS: A Poetry Reading
Saturday, October 15, 3pm
Berkeley Art Museum Theater, 2621 Durant Avenue, free admission
reception to follow

This poetry reading will feature almost three dozen Bay Area poets reading works written in response to the experience of the Atomic Age. The program will include works by Laura Moriarty, Bill Berkson, Ron Loewinsohn, Brenda Hillman, Alfred Arteaga, Bill Luoma, Michael Palmer, Leslie Scalapino, Jean Day, Robert Hass, Judith Goldman, Forrest Hamer, Kit Robinson, and Alan Bernheimer, among many others. Ghosting Atoms, an anthology of the poems presented at the reading, will be available for purchase at the reading.

This event is part of a month-long series, sponsored by the Consortium for the Arts and Arts Research Center at UC Berkeley, titled The Arts and the Atomic Bomb. Organized in conjunction with the premier of the opera Doctor Atomic in San Francisco, the series commemorates the 60th anniversary of the detonation of the first atomic bomb, and the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, by examining the atomic age through the lens of the arts. Information about other events in the series can be found at the Consortium for the Arts website.
