First, click here.

Then, tell me: what's the best reading you've ever been to?

My favorite was a Good Thunder, Fall 05. The poet Steve Gehrke read from his collection The Pyramids of Malpighi. I showed up for the reading in the midst of a panic attack, but Gehrke's poems are so amazing, and he gave such a good reading that I forgot all about my panic attack and instead listened, hypnotized.

Tom Franklin's reading last semester was great. He's such a personable guy, and he reminds me (in voice and appearance) of a dude I used to know named Nick Pleasure. I kid you not.

Roger was a good reader, kept everyone laughing. Li-Young Lee also: he read so softly that it forced everyone to be quiet and pay attention.
