I used to think the Clintons were the best thing to come out of Arkansas...
...but then I caught wind of this: The Frank Stanford Literary Festival, October 17 - 19, 2008
Fayetteville, Arkansas. Featuring a Small Press Reading, a panel on Stanford's life and works, a screening of the Stanford biopic It Wasn't a Dream It Was a Flood, a celebratory reading from Stanford's poems, and a marathon reading of The Battlefield Where the Moon Says I Love You.
I've said it before, in fact, I've said here before, but like Jack White falling in love with a girl, "it bears repeating." Frank Stanford was quite possibly the best poet of his time. Frank Stanford is the best poet of our time. Frank Stanford deserves this.
All pertinent information can and will be found here: http://frankstanfordfest.blogspot.com/
Also, from one hand of the Henriksen's to the other is Adam Clay's new chap on their press, Cannibal. "As Complete as a Thought Can Be," is for sale here: http://flesheatingpoems.blogspot.com/
Just buy it. AND, if you ever happen to bump into either Matt or Katy, tell them you love what they do, but that the Chicago Cubs make baby Jesus cry...everyone knows Christ is a Card's man.
