We have two online events coming up in September:
1) Friday September 23rd: we'll be hosting and recording an online panel with presentations and readings by several of our members who were unable to attend the Paris event in April. This won't be a live event but we'll be recording it and will share the discussion and talks/readings as soon after the event as we can.
2) Sunday September 25th, 5pm UK / 6pm Paris / midday East Coast: an online conversation with Nick Sturm, Alice Notley, Edmund Berrigan and Anselm Berrigan about Get the Money!: The Collected Prose of Ted Berrigan, 1961-1983, which will be published by City Lights on September 13th this year. Please register here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/get-the-money-an-online-conversation-tickets-411418232007. We'll record the discussion for anyone who can't watch live and share it on our website in due course.
