Dmitry Golynko & the NPP this Sunday 

Last month I had the pleasure of meeting Dimtry Golynko, an excellent poet from Petersburg, Russia who is in town as a UPenn writer-in-residence. His bilingual reading with poet/translator Eugene Ostashevsky from As It Turned Out (Ugly Duckling Presse) was terrific. Unfortunately, its scheduling conflicted with another event at the Kelly Writers House, & many friends who would have enjoyed it missed out.

The last time I saw him was a night of wine, food, good conversation & a great reading at Chapter House. He set out for a series of West Coast appearances shortly after. He's back in town for the Parshchikov event today, and Dmitry will be reading with the New Philadelphia Poets this Sunday. Be at Germ Books. Don't miss him before he leaves town next week.
