Carlisle, Pennsylvania, is further west from Philadelphia than New York is to its north. Home to Dickinson College & the one-time site of the Carlisle Indian Industrial School – where Marianne Moore taught from 1909 until 1915, back in the days when Jim Thorpe was the big man on that campus & his football coach was Pop Warner himself, Carlisle is not necessarily where you’d expect the best big poetry event of the fall to occur. But there you have it. On Saturday, the Flarf & Dusie collectives will kick out the jams big time at Dickinson College.

Reading from the Flarf gang will be Jordan Davis, Katie Degentesh, Drew Gardner, Nada Gordon, Michael Magee, Sharon Mesmer, Rod Smith, and Gary Sullivan. Dusie’s doozies will include Mackenzie Carignan, Scott Glassman, Mark Lamoureux, Marci Nelligan, Boyd Spahr, and Dana Ward. Drew Gardner will do something I don’t understand with Alarm Will Sound, a musical group at Farleigh Dickinson & Joey Bargsten will have multimedia works on display. Brandon Downing will show a film.

This event starts at 7:30 PM in the Rubendall Recital Hall at the Weiss Center for the Arts on High Street. That’s it in the photo above. This event is free.
