The Poetry Center presents Jim Dunn and Neeli Cherkovski, reading and in conversation. Dunn reads his poems from Convenient Hole (Pressed Wafer, 2005), Soft Launch (Bootstrap/Pressed Wafer, 2008), and from his unpublished manuscript Dreaming in Tongues. Cherkovski then reads poems including selections from his book Elegy For my Beat Generation (Lithic Press, 2018) and from the manuscript of his forthcoming book Hyper (due 2019 from Lithic Press). The readings are followed by a conversation with the audience.
