Event One -- Saturday 1/8 :  3-10 -- Writers and Books, University Ave.
If you like poetry, I hope you will consider attending the Writers and
Books' open house on Saturday which is celebrating their 30th anniversary.

Poetry, Potluck and Pinot !
This is free, and marks the kick-off for celebrating 30 years of W&B, and if
the spirit moves, bring a dish to pass or a  bottle of Pinot (noir, grigio,
gris, etc.) in a sharing poetry, food and wine.
Invite your friends – the more, the merrier.
Here is the current schedule for readings: (more poets are being added all
the time)

Event Two:  Saturday 1/15:  2-3:30, Pittsford Community Library
Come for a free presentation by Miriam Lerner of the video, she and Don
Feigel of RIT directed, "The Heart of the Hydrogen Jukebox".  You might have
heard me explain one of the episodes of Ginsberg reading "Howl" to deaf
students and asking how the interpreter signed "Heart of Hydrogen Jukebox"
-- and how the intricacies of translation go beyond signs into total body
gesture.  Only 6% of a message comes from actual words -- and this film and
Miriam's talk will provide a variety of performance and literary styles of
Free, and followed by refreshments, so the library asks that you rsvp -- or
let me know, as I arranged for the event.
