For those of you in New York this weekend, there will be an event devoted to the work of Alice Notley featuring a great cast reading selections of her poetry, as part of the Downtown Literary Festival. Here are the details:
“The City Drifting”: Celebrating the Poetry of Alice Notley
Each year, the festival celebrates a poet with strong ties to downtown literary culture; last year’s inaugural festival featured Frank O’Hara. This year, Timothy Donnelly, Lynn Melnick, Rachel Zucker, Marcella Durand, John Godfrey, Stacy Szymaszek, Kim Lyons, Filip Marinovic, Charif Shanahan, Erica Kaufman, John Coletti, and Patricia Spears Jones read chosen poems from Alice Notley’s work.
