RADIO LOVE OF A NOCTURNAL CROWD: A READING COURTING JOYCE MANSOUR
Cafe Istanbul (inside the Healing Center)

Daniel Borzutzky • Paula Cisewski • Shanna Compton • Kenning Jean-Paul García •
K. Lorraine Graham • MC Hyland • Maureen Thorson • Elisabeth Workman

Bloof + friends tune our antennae to the dark-erotic frequencies of the Jewish French-Egyptian poet, Joyce Mansour, Queen of the Extra-Surrealist Night: ”Collect the bubbles / Hustle sour winds up the sidewalk / Suck the fresh flesh of the ruby”

Poets will be reading some of Mansour’s work along with some of their own.
