Basil Bunting reading in Honolulu, March 6, 7 pm at Native Books

Aloha Tinfish writers and friends--Our next reading will be a launch of _The Poems of Basil Bunting_, an important English Objectivist poet. The book was edited by Don Share. Bunting's not alive, but his three grandchildren, all of whom live in Honolulu, will be there. They include Daphne Barbee-Wooten, whom I met a couple years back at the Book and Music Festival. Wing Tek Lum will be there to talk a bit about Bunting and to read a few of his poems.
We need guest readers. If you will be so kind as to say yes, I'll send you a poem by Bunting to read. If you know his work, you'll know why we're doing this. If you do not, then come find out! Please let me know soon. Time slips away so quickly--
And please let your friends know.
