Each year in honor of National Poetry Month (that’s April, in case you didn’t know), the Regulator Bookshop in Durham hosts a series of Tuesday night poetry readings — and this year’s line-up looks great for the next three weeks. No word (yet?) on whether there will be an event on the final Tuesday of the month, but in the meantime, check out:
- Florence Nash, Fish Music, and Grey Brown, When They Tell Me, on Tuesday, April 6
- Tony Abbott, New & Selected Poems, 1989-2009, and Debra Kaufman, Moon Mirror Whiskey Wind, on Tuesday, April 13
- David Manning, Continents of Light, and Bruce Lader, Landscapes of Longing, on Tuesday, April 20
Additionally, both of the Triangle’s other big independents will be presenting poetry-themed events. On Sunday, April 11, Quail Ridge Books in Raleigh offers up a trio of North Carolina poets: Nancy Carter, Near the End of the Rainy Season, Peter Makuck, Long Lens, and Scott Owens, Paternity.
And McIntyre’s Books in Fearrington Village continues its monthly series in conjunction with the North Carolina Poetry Society with a reading by Lenard Moore, A Temple Looming, and John Amen, At the Threshold of Academy, on Sunday, April 25.
