Lewis Warsh served as MC & read last. The readers were Barbara Henning, who also read a poem by Harris Schiff; Mitch Highfill; Bill Kushner, who read a section of Ruth Altman's "Things I Miss", which included Bill's hair, clearly gone; Bernadette Mayer included a new poem about Eliot Spitzer's inauguration; Dennis Moritz presented 4 very short theater pieces performed exquisitely by Matt & Anna; Tom Savage even sang; Anne Waldman read from "Blue Mosque", a new piece "Corset" & a poem by Reed Bye; & Lewis doing Charlie Vermont.
While the readers were judicious with time, the "band" Legends was interminable, which is bad after a long night, & had 17 endings, so it seemed. I won't mention the refreshments.
The event was part of David's ongoing series: "d.a. levy lives: celebrating the renegade press," check out boogcityevents.blogspot.com, just down the street (so to speak).
