The Cambridge Reading Series, launched last February, has been consistently excellent. The format is: 2 poets; English Faculty drama studio; digressive, odd, engaged introductions; 7.30 on Fridays. Best of all for anyone who’s missed out on Rodefer, Lisette, Manson, Toal, Mobarak, Joyce, Olsen, Kruk, Rider, Lindsay, Jarvis, Bonney, Crangle, Thornton, Warriner, James, Leonard, and Sutherland, the texts passed around at the readings are all now online, here, via the links on the right.
