The Daniel Thompson Poet Stone Fund

BFD posted a notice for The Daniel Thompson Poet Stone Fund benefit that is happening on February 12, in Little Italy. Here are some of his poems and some other press. The event is free, billed as “an evening of poetry, polemics, and performance,” and the rest of the details are past the jump. I’ll see you there.

Join us on Saturday, February 12th, 2005, at 7:30 p.m., at algebra t-house in Cleveland’s Little Italy for an evening of poetry, polemics, and performance to benefit “The Daniel Thompson Poet Stone Fund.”
