Tonight! A Literary Steel Cage Match

Just a reminder about our event tonight!

7 PM, The Strand Bookstore (828 Broadway @ 12th street)

FSG's Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Paul Muldoon
faces off against Knopf's Brad Leithauser in a Quickmuse event to see who can create the best poem in front of an audience in only ten minutes. Bring your own brass knuckles, in case things get a little crazy. (You know how these poetry events can turn in a second!)

Debut poet Eliza Griswold opens the event with a reading from her upcoming book, Wideawake Field. Wine and cheese served.

And just to get you even more excited, here's a little preview of what Paul Muldoon has in store for you, thanks to YouTube:
