Poetic Justice Series: Franz Wright and Henri Cole

Last night was a comedy of errors. I had planned on attending two readings: the first was the Franz Wright-Henri Cole event at the swanky Liberty Hotel, which I did. Both poets were engaging and generous with their time and words.

Thanks to Harris Gardner with Tapestry of Voices (the host with the most!), and The Grolier Poetry Book Shop, for putting together the Poetic Justice Series. It was nice to see two poets whom I've admired over the years read together.

However, I missed my friend Tom Yuill reading with Robert Pinsky because I misread the directions. That's after Tom e-mailed me the correct address earlier in the week. What can I say? I am directionally challenged.

*Sorry Tom. Hope to see you read again very soon.*
