a 65th birthday celebration for d.a. levy
The Poetry Project at St. Marks Church, 131 E. 10th St. (@2nd Ave.), NYC
Come honor the life and work of the late Cleveland poet-publisher who was at the vanguard of the mimeo revolution of the sixties. We¹ll recognize the radical and enduring effect levy left on small press poetry and publishing during his short life with readings of his work and informal discussion.
Participants will include Steve Clay, Bob Holman, Jake Marx, and Gary Sullivan, with some special guests, too. This event will be preceded by a free screening of Kon Petrochuk¹s levy biopic ³if i scratch, if i write² at 5:00 p.m. at the Bowery Poetry Club (308 Bowery and 1st Street, NYC). Co-curated with The Poetry Project.
