The Poetry Reading That Almost Wasn’t

January 12, 2010

First there was Linda Ferguson’s kidney stones; now there is Jim Clark’s bronchitis.  It seems the fates have it out for the January Poetry Hickory.  After 28 months of no cancellations, we’ve had two cancellations this month.  BUT . . . Have no fear!  The show will go on.  Terri Kirby Erickson is standing in for Linda, and the incomparable Ted Pope will read in the place of Jim Clark.  And, of course, our three Open Mic readers (Tony Rankine, Brian Legore, and Glen Wigington) are still ready to read as well (I hope).  So, we’ll still start with the Open Mic at 6:30, followed by Erickson, and then Pope to wrap it all up.  My special thanks to Terri and Ted for pinch hitting on such short notice.
