WELCOME TO THE HVWC CALENDAR: home of all our upcoming readings, events and workshops. You can view by list or calendar (see right menu to choose). Click the colored tabs below to show only specific options. Our workshops run as multi-session series or one-day “intensives.” Note, we list the multi-session courses on the first day they meet only. The full dates of the session are described in the course descriptions. You would need to scroll back to the start date if you needed to enroll for something already underway. But do let us know if you want to join something in midstream since we need the blessing of the instructor. Questions? Email us.

An Evening with Karen Finley & Daniel Lawless

April 12 @ 7:00 pm - 8:45 pm

$5 – $10

Karen Finley will read from her most recent book of poetry, Grabbing Pussy. She is a performance artist, musician and poet. Her performance art, recordings, and books are used as forms of activism.

Karen Finley has written various books that focus on controversial topics. She wrote Shock TreatmentEnough Is Enough: Weekly Meditations for Living Dysfunctionally, and A Different Kind of Intimacy – a latter collection of her works. Her poem “The Black Sheep” is among her best-known works; it was displayed as public art in New York City for one month.

Daniel Lawless will read from his book The Gun My Sister Killed Herself With (Salmon Poetry Press, 2017). He is the founder and editor of Plume: A Journal of Contemporary Poetry.
