Remember when poetry readings were intimate?
Before the big crowds and paparazzi ruined poetry, readings were places where a person could sit in the same room as a poet and feel as if she were only reading to him. O, Miami recreates that by-gone era and, in the process, sets a Guinness World Record for:
The World's Smallest Poetry Reading
Tuesday, November 17, 7 p.m.
The Swamp at Miami Book Fair International
The World's Smallest Poetry Reading celebrates the publication of Eight Miami Poets (Jai-Alai Books, 2015), an anthology of young local poets who do not yet have a published collection of poems.
Sit in a private room with Annik Adey-Babinski, Zain Aslam, Legna Rodríguez Iglesias, Fabienne Sylvia Josaphat, Yaddyra Peralta, Cherry Pickman, Sarah Trudgeon, or Nick Vagnoni and hear an original poem read just for you.
While you wait, have a drink, listen to music, or browse for new reading material at a special edition of Bookleggers Library.
