Put our money where our mouths are, no?

I am not really sure why this hasn't received more press but Suffolk University is commemorating the 35th anniversary of Graywolf Press tomorrow. Hosted by Catherine Parnell of Salamander, the celebration also features a conversation earlier in the day with Graywolf Press director Fiona McCrae before the readings in the evening . Details follow below:

Based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Graywolf publishes nearly thirty books a year. Many of their titles have included some of literature’s highest honors, including the National Book Critics Circles Award, the Poetry Society of America’s William Carlos Williams Award, the Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award, and the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award, and have been named best books of the year by the New York Times, Time Magazine, and Publisher’s Weekly.

Please join Graywolf Press and Suffolk University for a reading in honor of Graywolf’s 35th anniversary. Featured readers are Stephen Burt, Close Calls with Nonsense; Linda Gregg, All of It Singing: New and Selected Poems; Fred Marchant, The Looking House; Askold Melnyczuk, The House of Widows; Marie Mutsuki Mockett, Picking Bones from Ash; Salvatore Scibona, The End; and Jeffrey Yang, An Aquarium.

The reading will be held at Suffolk University’s C. Walsh Theatre, 55 Temple Street, Boston, MA on Tuesday, November 3, 2999 from 7:00 – 8:30 pm.

Suffolk University also invites you to join us for a discussion (moderated by Catherine Parnell) with Fiona McCrae, Director of Graywolf Press. The discussion--held in Fenton 134, at Suffolk University-- will take place on Tuesday, November 3rd, at 1 p.m. The Fenton Building is at the corner of Derne and Hancock Streets.

Me? I'll be attending this as man can't live by words alone. Hey-yo!
