Skanky Possum Presents Burdick and Boughn, Saturday April 19

We hope you can join us for a poetry reading at Casa Nguyen-Smith where our guest poets will be Alice Burdick and Michael Boughn.

There will be food, poets, fun, and books for sale. It’s a reading and a party. Please bring friends, your favorite beverage, and money to buy books.

The gathering begins at 7 PM. Reading starts at 8:20 PM sharp.
