Terri Witek will be reading at Chapters, a literary bookstore. Terri's a friend of mine, and her poetry is frequently about graphic images. Her current book, Carnal World, is on her responses to paintings.
Chapters has a description up now:
Time: Saturday, October 14, 2006 5:00 PM
Title of Event: Steve Scafidi & Terri Witek
"This is a return trip for Steve Scafidi, whose second collection, For Love of Common Words exuberantly embodies that title, in being both meditative and defiant about our common losses. Terri Witek, whom we know and admire from the West Chester Poetry Conference, reads from Carnal World, her smart, funny, and keenly observant poems on paintings."
Terri's in town with her husband, Joseph 'Rusty' Witek, who's attending ICAF and is the author of Comic Books as History: the Narrative Art of Jack Jackson, Art Spiegelman, and Harvey Pekar.
