Along with the books’ editor, Katerina Stoykova-Klemer, the poetic gang will be at the Frankfort Avenue store Sunday, April 1st at 4pm.

Fresh from her date tonight with 21c’s penguin paramours, poet and publisher, Martha Rhodes, will speak at the University of Louisville tomorrow, Tuesday, March 27th at noon as part of the Axton Reading Series.
