A rare Sunday reading a Ada Books! On June 1st, at 6pm, Boston's Black Ocean poets Janaka Stucky and Rauan Klassnik will, ahem, wash up on our shores. We'll provide you with all the grog and hardtack you can stomach. All you need to do is show up and listen in.

This Saturday, May 24, Jason Stumpf will read from his own poetry as well as from his translations of Pura López-Colomé (her collection, Aurora, is now available from Shearsman Books). ¡He might even read some of her work in the original Spanish! As always, one corner of the shop will be devoted to snacks and wines. You'll come, won't you?

Live readings from Dead in Desemboque,
Friday, May 16th, at 7pm.
Alec Thibodeau & Will Schaff
astound you with vocal renderings
of inked-in word balloons!
Lightbeams project the scenes
so that even the feeblest
eyes may see them! Plus:
plenty of cold Tecate,
chips and chipotles for
bold bellys & intimid tongues!
Also: copies of the comic
will be made availabe for sale
in case you want to relive or
re-enact the scenes at home!
And: Hey, look at this!
