Years ago, I ran a small salon-style reading series called Mixtape, where poets read work that was not their own. Now my friend Chris Vitiello, in conjunction with the Hinge Literary Center, has revived and renovated Mixtape at the Casbah in Duhram.
Tomorrow night (Tuesday, July 24) at 8 pm, I’m reading in it with poet Fred Moten, filmmaker sarah goetz, and photographer M.J. Sharp. I’ll be giving a presentation about the love/hate nature of parody, using Longfellow as a lens. Details on the Hinge website can be found here.
