Dear All--

The session scheduled for this Friday is being postponed.  We'll know  
shortly when it will be rescheduled and I'll announce that right  
away. The next definite date is 4/24 when we'll be visited by the  
critic/scholar Steve Evans, who will be talking about sound and poetry.

I also wanted to make mention of a report of Roubaud and his fellow  
OULIPians in NYC at an event moderated by our Jean-Jacques Poucel.   
If you visit this URL you'll see a terrific photo of Jean-Jacques and  
a very nice write-up from Artforum:

Meanwhile this is a busy week for events touching on WGCP.

---Tomorrow our very own Eoin Burke will be having show of his  
sculpture.  here's the info:

Announcing an ending in due time, a show, which will immediately  
ensue a beginning which is everything else.
Please join us, or at least express interest that is only complicated  
by distance.
I hope you are well;

Boris Chesakov
Ian Campbell
Eóin Burke
Laura Marsh
Sarah Lasisse

Opening night : Wednesday April 8 at 7 pm
(7 to 8.30 at 1156 Chapel and 8.30 to 10 at 32 Edgewood)

up Monday April 6 to Saturday April 18

Locations :
1156 Chapel Street & 32 Edgewood Avenue
New Haven CT  06511

---Also, This Thurs at 5.30 Adina Hoffman will be at Labyrinth  
Bookstore on York St.  Adina is launching her new biography of Taha  
Muhammad Ali.  Two years ago Adina visited the group to discuss her  
work on this fascinating poet.  The book is now out from Yale UP.

---And also, Suzanne Heyd, until recently a core member of WGCP  
(until she moved to Philadelphia) has a new chapbook:
Suzanne Heyd's chapbook, Fascicles, is available from
Finishing Line Press and you can reserve your copy here:
Because the chapbook is being printed as a limited collector's  
edition and
the press run will be determined by the amount of orders made before  
29, now's the time to help the work make its way in the world! The books
will ship in mid-June.

So, soon Jean-Jacques (currently on tour with Roubaud) will provide  
minutes of our most recent session.  And I will give more details  
about Steve Evans's visit by the end of the week.
