Random Name Poetry: CA Conrad and Ariana Reines

Penn Book Center's Random Name reading series begins its 2013 season with a reading by two of the most exciting voices in contemporary poetry. There will be books for sale, and refreshments. Should be amazing - you might want to get here early to get a seat.
