You are invited to mark Cor van den Heuvel's first trip to Bushwick!

The foremost proponent of haiku in this country, van den Heuvel, editor of the Baseball Haiku anthology (Norton), will read his work at Bushwick's own Storefront Gallery on May 4. Yours truly will introduce him and read a couple of her own poems. Here he is discussing the anthology on NPR.

Cor has been writing haiku since he heard Gary Snyder mention it in San Francisco in 1958. He has become an expert on the form and is a captivating reader.

Again, here are the details:
