The Reliquarium: This Saturday!
It's finally happening! The Reliquarium, that is, and hopefully not the end of the world. Though the Reliquarium does sport an apocalyptic theme this year in light of the Doomsday predictions. According to Harold Camping, it's supposed to be an earthquake, so I called to check on our earthquake insurance and now I'm ready to party.
While the Reliquarium is a fundraiser for SPT, we're also considering it an end of season poetry party, so come out and mingle and have fun and enjoy the end of the semester (if you teach or learn!). Let's see: literary timecapsule? Check. End times dance party? Check. Reenactments from the end of the world? Check. And, the main event: an auction of reliquaries from such luminaries as Charles Bernstein, Rachel Blau DuPlessis, Kathleen Fraser, Bob Gluck, Nathanial Mackey, Harryette Mullen, Eileen Myles, Camille Roy, Tyrone Williams, and many others.
And it's a pretty quite poetry weekend, so you don't have an excuse. It all goes down this Saturday (May 21st) in the CCA Grad Writing Lounge (195 de haro Street, SF) at 7:30 pm. Come out and support one of your crucial local resources while catching up with long lost friends!
