i found this letter-pressed coaster in the Minnesota Center for Book Arts gift shop with this great drawing by Georgia Lune.

this weekend i am learning to appreciate minneapolis. tonight i went to a reading at mager’s and quinn bookstore and sampled some great wine and food as well as i heard some surprisingly impressive poetry. i read some books and manuscripts. i requested books from the library (to save time and hopefully parking money….the books will be waiting for me so i can scoop them up and take them home). i added some old favorites like Anne Carson and Jorie Graham, as well as some I don’t know as well like Thomas Transtromer and my friend, Amanda Nadelberg.
tomorrow: reading and writing at a newly found coffee shop.
