The surrealism conference at Bucknell included good old fashioned group readings in the evenings, starting with a grand night on the stage of the Campus Theater. I got to meet many poets I had been reading for years but had never seen before, starting with our host/MC, G.C. Waldrep.
Poets included Charles Borkhuis, Edgar Garcia, George Kalamaras, Andrew King, Jennifer Militello, me and Nina Puro.
The second night's reading festival included poets reading their own work, and poetry in translation. Readers were C. Dylan Bassett, Mary Ann Caws, Merrill Cole, Joanna Fuhrman, Penelope Rosemont, Ron Sakolsky, Peter Streckfus and Bill Zavatsky.
