 Dear Devotees of the Muse-

 Please, join us as our protean houseband introduces 3 essential poets this Thursday, November 17th, at 8:00pm.

Once again, Unnameable (615 Vanderbilt Ave , near the corner of St. Marks) Books is our gracious host . We'll join with the bushes, fencing, lights, concrete and avian luminaries to enjoy 3 terrific poets & the opening music of Downtown Girls with special guest Tetya Motts:

Brenda HillmanKnows what to say as she grabs a pen or reaches for a keyboard as the loose sugar pours from her fingers onto the page or the screen creates a space for the letters to assemble & jockey for meaning often hidden in the ashes left by the fire of creation

Evelyn Reilly  incorporates an anthropocene bent to use the plastic nature of styrofoam to stave off the impending Apocalypse like a mad yo yo on hiatus, walking the dog in the eternity of the spinning omniverse

Elinor Nauen- Hails from a state that features not one but five famous figures carved into the granite peaks and does quite bit of her own metaphysical carving in the pomes & prose of her career tossing a mean fastball along with a few curves to catch us in life's levity
Other Arc Enesmble listens to the streams of one another as if multiple rivers conjoin to form a ring around the hands that bind, the keys that find, the cicatrix that keeps us playing, the notes as sutures to heal the wound, salve for the day's ailments, hoozah.

This event is free. The meet n greet begins at 8:00 as the band plays with the call & response of the wind & ambient street / sky noise. We plan to commence the series at 8:30 sharp with a quick hello, followed by the introduction to the 1st poet/ performer.

Please keep in mind that this Thursday November 17th bodes for a chilly evening with temperatures in the 40's!  Dress with long johns, head coverings, gloves & scarves in mind as we see if the bookstore can source some heating lamps for the Muse's return.

There is limited seating in the new backyard (about 30 seats). There is no basement reading space - so if the weather turns to rain we will have to huddle inside - or cancel - more on that if it becomes a necessity; As always we look forward to seeing old & new faces.

Listen for the bang of the drum or the rattle-shake of the chekere.

X's to your O's,
Jeffrey Joe
