I know this is probably not a surprise, but the odds of us holding any in person readings this spring are pretty close to nil. The library is still closed to regular use (although you can still get quite a few things online/pick up holds, etc.) and there is no way to know when it will reopen to the public. We could try online readings, but because those readings are now effectively global and anyone can go to a reading anywhere, there is already a cornucopia of readings that we can all attend, and rather than try to stand out in that crowd) and the work it would take to do that!), we are going to stay dormant for now and hold for when we can meet again in person. Not an easy decision to make, but a practical one.
I hope all of you are doing as well as you can and finding good poetry and moments of joy as we all try to navigate through this perilous time.–Lucinda
