Noah Eli Gordon & Sommer Browning Reading Tour

In support of both of their new books, Noah Eli Gordon (whose The Source just came out from Futurepoem) and Sommer Browning (whose Either Way I’m Celebrating just came out from Birds LLC) are hitting the road and the nation with some singular languages. Come do a look and hear where you can. I just read Sommer’s book of poems and comics and it is brimming with some other energy, kind of like if Dickinson & Kafka had survived to see the advent of malls and complex sugars (or not at all, but you know… it’s electric). Noah’s book, based on his “ambient research” of a year of reading only page 26 of books, is currently glowing in my wait-brain to be eaten hard. Do not miss!

If your city doesn’t appear here, fret not: Noah & Sommer will be reading live here on the site for the return of our Live Giants reading series. Plan to show up March 15th at 9 PMish. More info later. Dates after the jump.

      Noah’s book changed my mind about the poetry as process/poetry as exercise thing.
