Poetry Night Next Tuesday, Feb. 24th

Just got this email from Richard Smith, a friend of ours, who is putting on a second poetry night next Tuesday. The poetry night is True/False fundraiser for dissident Burmese journalists. The lineup of readers looks really good. Here is Rich with details:

Poetry night will start at 8pm. There will be four readers: two Stephens girls will read poems that they've written about Burma for the first 15 minutes. Then Katy Didden. Intermission. Then Marc McKee then myself. The whole thing should last about an hour.

The Fundraiser is for promoting free press in Burma, where our bald monk brothers over there are getting beaten up for trying to take pictures of the evil junta.
