The Poetry Center presents Benjamin Hollander reading his poem "Levinas and the Police," later to be published in his book Vigilance (Beyond Baroque Books, 2005). The close of the poem incorporates a recording of William Alwyn's soundtrack music for Carol Reed's 1947 film noir, Odd Man Out. Sarah Menefee also read her work on the same program.
The Poetry Center presents Cosmic Diaspora and Steve Dalachinsky, reading and in performance. Cosmic Diaspora (Jake Marmer, poetry; John Schott, guitar; and Joshua Horowitz, keyboard, accordion) opens with a set of songs shaped around poems by Marmer, paralleling immigration and science fiction. Steve Dalachinsky follows with an extended reading, much of it dedicated to musicians, from The Superintendent's Eye (Autonomedia/Unbearable Books, 2000), The Mantis (Iniquita Press, 2009), and works in manuscript.
