Whalen in Portland

Michael "Big Bridge" Rothenberg's coming to Portland this Saturday to celebrate the publication of Whalen's Collected (92 doodles!) at Reed College, the poet's alma mater.

You can count the Northwest's claims to 20th-century poetry glory on one, two hands tops, and Whalen gets an early digit. Hope locals come.
SATURDAY, MARCH 29, 7:30 p.m.

Readings from Whalen's work with poets Michael Rothenberg, David Abel, Terri Carrion, Hammond Guthrie, Rodney Koeneke, Moshe Lenske, Kaia Sand & Lindsay Hill. Introduction & Overview of Whalen at Reed by Pancho Savery & Gay Walker.
Eliot Chapel at Reed College, 3203 SE Woodstock Blvd.
