Selected Subtext

By BookNerd August 5, 2009

Tonight, poetry people will want to head over to the Subtext Reading Series to hear the transcendent meanderings of painter/poet/translator Norma Cole. She was in France for the '68 general strike, hung out with Robert Duncan and the like in the '80s, and has been writing, teaching, and making art in San Francisco ever since.

Here's a podcast of a reading she gave in May  from her latest book, Where Shadows Will, Selected Poems 1988-2008 (published by City Lights).

Cole is appearing with local poet-translator Will Owen, who recently graduated from Evergreen. He coordinates the reading series at Gallery 1412, which, like Subtext, is consistently good.

Reading starts at 7:30 at the Chapel Performance Space in Wallingford.
