The Mentalist's Mental Cabinet of Vengeance!

It's a party. Canarium Books, Dalkey Archive Press and STOP SMILING magazine present readings by Rikki Ducornet, August Kleinzahler, Robyn Schiff, Ish Klein and Tod Marshall.

The 2009 AWP Conference brought the publishing industry to Chicago during the second week of February, and STOP SMILING celebrated the event with gusto. Listen in as poets August Kleinzahler, Rikki Ducornet, Robyn Schiff, Tod Marshall and Ish Klein read from a selection of their work. Klein showed some of her videos as well, including The Mentalist's Mental Cabinet of Vengeance, for which the party was named.


Recorded Friday, February 13, 2009 at Stop Smiling Storefront.
