The Friday Short List: Event Edition









Happy birthday, Elizabeth Moon!

We have big news at 236 Bay State this week: All of our current fiction writers and poets received a Global Fellowship this year!  They can travel and write anywhere they desire in 2014.  Congratulations, all!  You can read more about that program here.

Some literary links and events to check out over BU’s spring break:

Today is the birthday of sci-fi author Elizabeth Moon.

Novelist Vivian Shotwell reads at Harvard Book Store tonight at 7.

This will be a stellar evening: Poetry & Jazz with Robert Pinsky and co. on Tuesday, 3/11, at 7:30.

Poetry Slam at the Cantab on Wednesday, 3/12, at 8 (get there by 7:30–tickets sell out fast!).

As promised last week, Dan Chiasson will read at Harvard Book Store on Thursday, 3/13, at 7:30.

826 Boston hosts Literary Jeopardy at Porter Square Books, also Thursday, 7 – 9.  We’d love it if you could donate to the BU Write-A-Thon Team to help young writers!

And in the spirit of Lent, here’s a poem I recently discovered by T.S. Eliot, which he wrote shortly after converting to Anglicanism.

Have a wonderful weekend!
