May 2nd, Cambridge Launch of Issue 8/9

Please join us for the Cambridge launch of issue 8/9 at 7.30pm on 2 May in the University of Cambridge, Faculty of English, Judith E. Wilson Drama Studio. Readings and performances by Vahni Capildeo, Jeremy Hardingham, Rosie Šnajdr, Ish Klein, and Jennifer Thorp. Projections, doodling, and free wine. A great chance to pick up the a copy of the new issue. But what if you can’t make it? Hmmm. Ok. The issue is also available in Cambridge Heffers and online. If you Facebook, there is the page to ascertain the likelihood of bumping into friends, fiends, nemeses, etc.

Next week: NYC launch of 8/9

Calling all NYC dwellers (or visitors): we are having a launch for the beautiful issue 8/9, honouring all forms of writing for/with/inspired by/about children and their literatures. Please come to Book Culture on the Upper West Side, right by Columbia, on Monday April 13th, from 7pm.

We have an awesome line-up, each writer with work in this very issue (the CLR has truly gone transatlantic): Uljana Wolf and her translator (and poet-in-own-right) Sophie Seita; Patrick Coyle with his poem-prose-performance-piece; and poet Joshua Beckman.

And SAVE THE DATE if you happen to be in Cambridge rather than the US: May 2nd will see another launch at the Judith E. Wilson Drama Studio. Watch this space for details…

Another CLR prize?

Congrats to another CLR writer: Peter Gizzi is a finalist for the LA Times Book Prize with his In Defense of Nothing: Selected Poems, 1987-2011:
