Hi folks:  Yes you read that right! My other birthday is Tommorow! (10/27/ Wouldn't you like to know . LOL)

OTHERWISE JUST READ ON!)  Other birthdays of note include : Poetri ( my "cosmic twin"  because he was also  born on 10/27/ Wouldn't you like to know .)  Steve Goodie (11/4/ Wouldn't you like to know.)  More on this later.  Here's what's going on this week

So we invite you to join us in the readings on Saturday and/or Sunday. NOTE that we don't expect participants will join us for all 4 readings -- in fact, we're counting on most folks joining us for 1 or 2 reading sets so we have room for more poets.

These poets can also participate in the readings; however, we obviously need folks who can staff the table during the reading periods.We also need volunteers to staff the ticket booth on Saturday for 1 hour shifts.The organizers need to know the availability of volunteers ASAP.
