Chicago Poetry Project: Jenny Boully
Jenny Boully at the Green Lantern “Poets Talking” series
CHICAGO POETRY PROJECT: POETS TALKING
Since 2001, the Chicago Poetry Project has brought locally and nationally significant poets to Chicago audiences. This year, the Project initiates a new series of poet’s talks. In the tradition of Bob Perelman’s Folsom Street talk series, but without the book & DVD package, or the lectures of Prof. Irwin Corey, but without the academicism, the series aims to generate discussion of issues in poetics among writers and readers outside the university umbra. This inaugural year will take up the issue of education: how does a poet get educated? and how might he or she work as an educator, in and outside of writing?
Talks will take place at the Green Lantern Gallery, 1511 N. Milwaukee Ave.
This month's talk will feature Jenny Boully
on Tuesday, May 18, at 7:30pm.
