WHISTLE STOP, sponsored by the Buffalo-based Foundlings poetry magazine, promises “unforgettable political readings.”
You won’t want to miss Megan Kemple (poet/actor), Ben Brindise (member of Buffalo’s award-winning #PureInkPoetry slam team), Justin Karcher (Tailgating at the Gates of Hell) and Pat Kewley (published in Salon, Slate, and McSweeney’s), as they read from important historically banned or censored works before reading some of their own work. Included will be presidential haiku, protest poetry, original verse, punk rock, and riffs on the Founding Fathers’ street ball slam-dunking skills.” English department adjunct, and founding partner of Foundlings poetry magazine, Aidan Ryan, ’14 will lead the discussion.
Tuesday, September 27, 1-3 PM, Library Learning Center on the First Floor of the Library.
This event is free and open to the public.
