Tues, December 7th: Poets George Rachel, James Gendron, Michael Roberts. Artwork by Nicholas Nemo Bottman + Music (TBA)

The ever talented artist, writer and poet George Rachel will be reading this December Switch, along with poet James Gendron, who has a new, wonderfully sharp book called Money Poems with Poor Claudia.

This night is poet Michael Roberts' birthday, and he will be joining us from SoCal to read poems from No More Poems About the Moon, & new poems. There will also be a very special musical guest, who we're keeping under our hats until the event. Trust us, it's gonna be good. Nicholas Nemo Bottman's artwork will be featured as well. Info after the hump.
