All aboard “The Poetry Ville Express!” Four poets are inviting you to embark on an adventure at KGB Bar; according to the lounge’s website they want you to follow “their muses through the untamed realms of Poetry Ville – from avant romantic to nouveau commentary.” It’s “urbane grit served up with a side of Southern charm and a big old heaping of ‘holy shit.’” The poets: Lee Ann Brown, author of this year’s Other Archer as well as a string of other acclaimed works, including Polyverse, winner of the 1996 New American Poetry Competition; Wanda Phipps, author of Wake-Up Calls: 66 Morning Poems and coordinator for three years at The Poetry Project at St. Mark’s Church (bringing us epic New Years marathon readings each year); Mark Statman, whose most recent books include That Train Again and A Map of the Winds; and eco-activist Jeffrey Cyphers Wright (Party Everywhere), who published Cover Magazine until 2000 and currently publishes Live Mag!
Tuesday, Sept. 22 from 7 to 9 p.m. KGB Bar, 85 East 4th Street (East Village).
