Happy birthday, Adrienne Rich! and literary links


“A revolutionary poem will not tell you who or when to kill, what and when to burn, or even how to theorize. It reminds you… where and when and how you are living and might live, it is a wick of desire.”    -Adrienne Rich

Today is the birthday of Adrienne Rich!  She would have been eighty-five.  Here, she reads “Diving into the Wreck.”

And now some links for your weekend:

One of my favorite essays by Joan Didion (not that I have read that much of her work).

Come hear current MFA students and alum at Writers at the Black Box next Tuesday night!

BU alum Mimi Lipson will be reading at Newtonville Books on Wednesday.

The website for Miranda July’s collection of stories is just delightful.  The book itself is delightful too (or at least I think so).

In fact, I assigned this to my class this year.

According to Steve Almond, you should seriously read Stoner right now.

Anne Lamott tells us how to handle haters.

Make a cocktail Hemingway would be proud of.

“Live like a mighty river”: a letter from Ted Hughes to his son.

Neat idea for a notebook, ya?

Have a wonderful weekend, all!
