21c Museum Hotel
700 W. Main St. • 458-4028
As the last Monday of the month approaches, this means Sarabande will host another evening of poetry and music at 21c. Folks are invited to crush a complimentary cup of wine as they soak in the verbal affluence from the mouths of nationally recognized poets. March’s reading will feature the work of New Yorker Jason Koo and Louisville’s Constance Merritt after some guitar plucking from singer-songwriter Katy Rene.
Koo authored “Man on Extremely Small Island,” winner of the 2008 De Novo Poetry Prize. He teaches at NYU and Lehman College and serves as Poetry Editor of Low Rent. Merritt was born in Pine Bluff, Ark., in 1966, and was educated at the Arkansas School for the Blind in Little Rock. Winner of many prestigious prizes and fellowships, Merritt has penned three books of poems, most recently “Two Rooms.” —Dominic Russ
