Minneapolis/Ito Hiromi

Wanted to tell everyone in Minneapolis to go to the Twin Cities Book Festival in MCC in downtown Mpls today.

Joyelle will discuss "the future of poetry" with Stephen Burt, Matvei Y and some others at 10:30.

And the bookfair is the only place where you'll be able to score the brand new Action Books book, Killing Kanoko by Hiromi Ito(translated from Japanese by Jeffrey Angles) before it goes on sale (in a couple of months).

"Killing Kanoko is a powerful, long-overdue collection (in fine translation) of potery from the radical Japanese feminist poet, Ito Hiromi. Her poems reverberate with sexual candor, the exigencies and delights of the paradoxically restless/rooted female body, and the visceral imagery of childbirth. They leap off the page as perfomrative modal structures - fierce, witty, and vibrant. Ito is a true sister of the Beats." - Anne Waldman
