Find out tonight at the Henry Art Gallery, 7 pm, free. I’m giving a short talk—a footnote—following Olson’s reading. Annie Wagner is footnoting Matt Briggs’s reading with a scientific explication of earwigs, Charles Mudede is footnoting Jonathan Raban’s reading with a short discussion of Philip Larkin, and Jen Graves is intermittently holding forth on matters artistic.
