This evening Richard Howard and Julie Sheehan kick off the KGB Monday Night Poetry Series’ fall season. Doors open at 7pm with the reading scheduled to begin by 7:30.

Howard’s newest collection Progressive Education is due out this fall from Turtle Point Press. According to the Press, Howard says that this collection “involve[s] the disciplines and exemptions, as well as the vocabulary and, of course, the dramatis personae, of his own schooling.”

Sheehan’s latest book Bar Book: Poems & Otherwise was published by W.W. Norton and was released in 2010. Sheehan teaches in and directs the MFA program at Stony Brook Southampton.

KGB is located in the East Village at 4th Street and Second Avenue.
