MOUNTAIN is excited to learn that Reitha Pattison and Luke Roberts, who readers of Mountain Press will know from CERTAIN PROSE OF THE ENGLISH INTELLIGENCER and FALSE FLAGS, are giving a reading of their poetry in Cambridge on Thursday, 17 October. Missing it would be completely stupid. See the announcement below.



This is a new reading series of poetry. It is in Cambridge. Two readers will read every two weeks. This is the first reading. The first two readers will be Reitha Pattison and Luke Roberts, THIS Thursday, the 17th October, at 7.30 for 8p.m. in the Armitage Room (FF) at Queens’ College. Ask the porters for directions &c. Email David Grundy and Lisa Jeschke for further information, clarification, consternation.

Reitha Pattison is the author of SOME FABLES (Cambridge: Grasp, 2011) and the recent A DROLL KINGDOM (Scarborough, ME: Punch Press, 2013), as well as a co-editor of the Collected Poems of Ed Dorn (London: Carcanet, 2012). “The undersong of / the ‘economic cosmos’ is heard in / the meadow where the herbicides / work swift harm for a margin like / inharmonic blue prairie fires.”

Luke Roberts is the author of FALSE FLAGS (Cambridge: Mountain, 2011) and has a new book forthcoming from Equipage. “There is a car inside my stomach. / You are centuries late.”
