Hatchet Job XI: Sandra Liu, Ken Chen, Cate Marvin and Thomas Sayers Ellis

at Public Assembly, 70 N 6th Street, Brooklyn

Hatchet Job is a monthly reading series in which poets of all persuasions burn the fields to stave off the weevil and read in a dark room with alcohol. It’s free, same as you. But the hooch’ll cost you.

Friends, join us one week after election day for Hatchet Job XI. No matter what happens it’ll be cause for a pour.
