Get out and hear some live, local writers, of the Peauxdunque variety and otherwise. Peauxdunquian-extraordinaire Tom Carson will be reading from new and recent work TONIGHT, Wednesday, February 20, at the Art Klub (513 Elysian Fields), from 7:30 to 9:00, along with Lisa Pasold (Any Bright Horse) and Michael Patrick Welch (Y’all’s Problem).
Then Monday night, February 25, from 7:00 to 8:00, Benjamin Morris – who I’ll claim for Peauxdunque until I’m forced to stop – will be reading from new poetry at Cudd Hall at Tulane University, along with Melissa Dickey. Ben has just finished a book, a collection of poems a year in the making. Ben reports, “I have only one hope for it, which is to share it with you now that it’s done. It’s a book inspired by the endangered forests of southeastern Louisiana, a special landscape in a place we all know and love.” If you know Ben’s writing, you know this will be special.
