We are thrilled to announce the fourth issue of spoKe, a Boston-based poetry annual. We launch this issue with readings by Sue Standing, Len Krisak, and Marc Vincenz at 7:00 p.m. Saturday, December 12 at the Grolier Poetry Bookshop. Marc Vincenz will read from his translations of work by Swiss Poet Alexander Xaver Gwerder’s, Len Krisak will read from his translation of the poetry of Anna Akhmatova, and Sue Standing will read her work from spoKe 4. Grolier Poetry Bookshop is located at 6 Plympton Street in Cambridge, MA.
In addition to these poets, spoKe 4 features work by Ron Padgett, Sara Rivera, Ben Mazer, Meg Tyler, and the late Bill Berkson, to whose life and work we dedicate this issue.
We are also pleased to include an examination and tribute to Boston native V.R. “Bunny” Lang, including her poetry, rare photographs, and essays by Bill Corbett, Andrew Epstein, and Allison Vanouse.
Please join us on February 17 at the Grolier! Issues will be available at the reading and on Amazon, Lulu, and here on the spoKe website.
