Talk To Me: Pushcart Prize-Winners at Le Poisson Rouge

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

Four Pushcart Prize-winning writers took to the (very, very dim stage) at (Le) Poisson Rouge last month to read from their award-winning works. Listen to the readings above.

The night showcased poetry and prose by Kate Walbert, Marie Howe, Dale Peck and Mark Doty. From pieces set in the past, to ones that reflect on the future, the reading offered a wide variety of work (along with lots of writerly banter). Pushcart Press founder Bill Henderson introduces this excerpt of the reading, which features Kate Walbert and Marie Howe.  The evening was presented by The Writers Studio.
