Letterpressed Ways to Spend Your Time & Money

For those of you in the Cedar Falls area on January 31, go see Aaron McNally read from his new book, "Out of the Blue." He will be doing so at Bought Again Books as part of the Final Thursday reading series. It's been a tough month; school started up, Christmas is over, it's cold. Go watch Aaron perform his heart out, buy his book (see it here, and while you're there, peruse the poetry shelf and find something else to buy too. There are lots of things to spend money on, you should try poetry for once.
Speaking of which, Friedrich Kerksieck of Small Fires Press will be selling his wares at the AWP Book Fair in NYC January 31-February 2. If you give him money and point he will give you something in return...not to bad a deal if you ask me. Also, if you can't make it to NYC you can visit his website, which I've linked to the right, and buy stuff there. He works really hard and turns out beautiful products, not to mention great poetry. (I'll be reviewing his latest release here in the coming days)
AND, if you do happen to be in NYC instead of Cedar Falls on the 31st, you must come to this is the only possible "make-up" for not seeing Aaron. It is, "Steal This Reading," Thursday. January 31. East Coast Aliens Studio w/CD Wright, Eleni Sikelianos, Rauan Klassnik, Julie Doxsee, Graham Foust, Joyelle McSweeney, Joshua Marie Wilkinson, Max Winter, Adam Clay, Morgan Lucas Schuldt, Lily Brown, Melanie Hubbard, Cindy Savett, and Jon Thompson, 7-11pm. New York, NY. Bring money & buy their books too, especially Adam Clay, but especially Joshua Marie Wilkinson.

Okay, here's a poem...
