NightBallet Poet Chansonette Buck (blood oranges) Reads in Berkeley!


New York poet George Wallace will be coming to Cleveland for a special reading Friday May 11, 2012 at the Gypsy Beans and Baking Company, 6425 Detroit Avenue, Cleveland, Ohio, 6 PM.  The last time he read here was for Green Panda Press's Tres Versing the Panda event in May of 2009, so you know the opportunities to experience Wallace's marvelous poems in his own voice are few and far between.  Our thanks go to Charlotte Mann for hosting him at this reading. 

NightBallet Press was honored to publish George Wallace's 22nd chapbook of poems, sleeping beauty's revenge, in 2011, and we are super-excited to announce that NightBallet will be publishing a brand new chap of poems for him, the hard stuff, on May 11 to celebrate his Cleveland appearance!

Mark your calendars, clear your schedules, and save your shekels- don't miss out on this reading!

sleeping beauty's revenge is available for sale on this website.

Howl at the Coyote Moon! Night/Chronicles-Crisis/Ballet reading at Mac's Backs tonight!

Tonight, three poets will bring their own unique brands of poetry to a very special event:  the first joint NightBallet Press/Crisis Chronicles Press featured reading, in conjunction with the famous Mac's Backs Books reading series.  Call it our Night/Chronicle-Crisis/Ballet event!

T. M. Göttl will debut her book A Hurricane of Moths (published New Year's Day 2012 by NightBallet Press), J. E. Stanley will read from his new chap Rapid Eye Movement (published late 2011 by Crisis Chronicles Press), and Terry Provost will perform poems from An Uncountable Infinity Of Orgasms (published late 2011 by NightBallet Press).  The poems contained in these chaps hum with energy and echo with excitement, and you won't want to miss the opportunity to hear them read by the poets themselves!

Of course, these chaps will be available at the reading, through the authors who will have copies for sale, though publishers Dianne Borsenik and John Burroughs, and from Mac's Backs- Suzanne DeGaetano bought several copies to sell at the store. 

Also tonight, Cleveland poet Jim Lang's new chapbook Coyote Moon debuts!!!  Published yesterday on the February full moon, this book contains classic and new poems, graphics, and insights from seven decades in the life of a legendary poet/photographer.  Jim Lang will be a featured reader at next months's Mac's Backs/NightBallet/Crisis Chronicles event, March 21, but you don't have to wait a month to read his book!  Get your copy tonight and be a step ahead of the crowd!
