Brian Blanchfield is on a book tour for his new book, A Several World (Nightboat Books, 2014), and Bad Blood got him for his Portland stop. And local poets KMA Sullivan, author of the forthcoming Necessary Fire (Black Lawrence Press, 2014), and Standard Schaefer, author of Water & Power (Agincourt Press, 2005), will read for you too.
We’ll be at ADX, and we’ll be drinking and brand new brew from Gigantic.
And that’s Drew Swenhaugen, as always, on the poster design.
Sampson Starkweather, Paige Taggart, and Teresa K. Miller will read for Bad Blood XIX on Friday, August 23. You’ll want to hear poems read from this, this and this. And then you’ll want to buy those books directly from the poet, because in your heart, you’re one of the top 200 advocates for American poetry. See you around 7:30 at ADX.
