Have I mentioned how excited and proud I am that Christopher Hennessy was named a Finalist for the Thom Gunn Award for best gay poetry book of the year? Well, I am, and he deserves it.
We’ll be doing a reading together in Boston on Monday:
“BAP poets Christopher Hennessy (Finalist for the Thom Gunn Award) and Joe Pan (BAP founder) will be reading and signing books at the Boston UMass Bookstore next Monday, March 19th, from 1 pm to 1:30 pm. Directions: Take the Red Line to JFK/UMASS. Hop on the free shuttle bus to the bookstore. Drivers can park in one of the two main parking lots nearby.
Then, on the evening of March 19th, you can hear Christopher Hennessy read as part of the esteemed Blacksmith House Poetry Series, at 8PM. Tickets are $3, and take place at 56 Brattle Street.”
The Blacksmith House really is the icing on the cake.
