Event Report – Mel Nichols & Rod Smith

Approximately thirty-five people turned out to hear a Valentine’s Day reading by D.C.-based poets Mel Nichols and Rod Smith. The first event of the spring ’08 NWS featured new work by both writers and a lively question and answer session. Oh, and a singing puppet. And Flarf. And….

Full set-lists are on their way, as are some audio highlights. In the meantime, a few snaps from the event.
