Oy. Just when you feel like you've got time to pick up a book.
Numerous good things this weekend if you're puttering around NJ looking for poetry:
George Witte and Tina Kelley are reading at 1978 Maplewood Arts Center on Friday night.
Opposite them, unfortunately, Joel Allegretti relaunches the North Jersey Literary Series at Blend Cafe in Rutherford (note courtesy of the never-idle John J. Trause, who also support poetry at the Williams Center). Of course, you could catch George and Tina and still make Joel's late set
And just in case this isn't enough poetry for one weekend, spend Saturday at the Warren County Poetry Festival. Linda Pastan, Kurtis Lamkin.... something for everyone, guaranteed.
As for me, I need to get to the TV immediately...
