Allison Titus and Joshua Poteat rock.

They just do. If you haven't noticed, I suggest you make a point of noticing for your own good. Both of their readings were spectacular, moving, and yes, even informative.

There will be photos once they are developed. Sorry for the delay; I have not reached the digital age yet.

How else was it? There were poets. There were books. There was vinyl, both classic and confusing. There was a hedgehog. And there was a fabulously receptive crowd.

You can be a part of that crowd for next month's reading with John Colburn and Sarah Fox. More soon.
