Callie Garnett! Daniel Poppick! Marisa Crawford! So exciting! Poets at Wolfman! Saturday night! All three poets have new books! All three are from Brooklyn! And their first names all have six letters in them! What?! It's fate! Come down to the bookstore and say what up to your destiny! Who knows, we might even add a local poet to the mix! And stop using exclamation marks! Maybe! Eventually!
Oh wait! We did add a local poet! It's Margaret Ross! She's the author of A TIMESHARE, selected by Timothy Donnelly for the Omnidawn Poetry Book Prize.
