Todd Boss Upcoming Poetry Readings

I was very excited when I first learned about the release of Todd Boss's poetry collection Yellowrocket. Boss is one of my favourite contemporary poets. In conjunction with the release of this collection, he is giving several readings in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. I just received an email about the events. Since it isn't exactly in the vicinity of Shanghai, I won't be able to attend the readings, but thought I'd put the information up for those who can.

Boss's poetry is fun to read, and especially fun to listen to him read (I subscribe to his podcast). If you like hearing poetry read aloud very well, then Boss is someone you will enjoy very much. And if you get to hear him read in person at one of the upcoming events... I envy you!

The following information is taken from the email I received. (You might check in at Boss's website for updates. It looks like there might be a few more events listed there.)

November 17 (7pm)
Micawber’s Bookstore, Como and Carter Avenues, St. Anthony Park

November 20 (7pm) with Tim Nolan
Loft Literary Center, Washington Avenue, Minneapolis

December 16 (7pm) with a long list of other great local poets
University Club, Summit Avenue, St. Paul

There will be books available at all these readings, and we’ll probably go out for a celebration drink after each, depending on who’s around.
