Best Thing I’ve Heard This Week: Press > Play Festival

1 Oct

I’m lucky enough to be traveling around the East Coast and Great Lakes region for twelve days with several poets from Furniture Press Books, reading poems at twelve different events. The tour began at The Poetry Project in Manhattan on Friday, September 27 and includes stops at such venues and series as Rust Belt Books in Buffalo, The Big Big Mess in Akron, and Prairie Lights in Iowa City (the full itinerary can be found here).

Last Sunday, September 29, several Furniture Press poets read at the Press > Play Festival in Baltimore, hosted by Peabody Heights Brewery. Below you can find a few clips from the event.
