Talking In Rhythm
With the Bloomington clime turning decidedly fall-like, it’s the right time to hunker down and hear some poetry. So, Monster House Press is throwing another of its storied house party/readings — only this time the bash will be at Hopscotch 2, 212 N. Madison St., right around the corner from the flagship Bloomingfoods store.
Monster House’ll be celebrating the release of local poet SE Waters’ new chapbook, “They Offer a Name & Take it from You.” Joining SEW in oral metering will be Wendy Lee Spacek, Michelle Gottschlich, Hannah Hadley, Morgan Eldridge, and Kayte Young, with music by Glitter Brains.
