Interview of B Henning & Book Party for LOOKING UP HARRYETTE MULLEN

Dear Friends,

An interview of me by Rafael Otto about my poetics is now on online at NOT ENOUGH NIGHT.

Also for those of you in New York next week, the schedule of events for Harryette Mullen's readings and our conversation (Book Party for LOOKING UP HARRYETTE MULLEN) is as follows:

On Friday April 29th, at noon, Harryette will be reading her poetry at Long Island University in the Humanities Building 206 (as part of the rainbow series). Take the Q or R Train to Dekalb Avenue and the entrance near the Humanities Building is at the gate on Flatbush Avenue.

Later that same day at 7 pm at the Poet's House (10 River Terrace, dowtown), there is a book party for the book, as well a conversation between Harryette and me. We will be reading from the new book of interviews as well as looking at slides from her new Geneology project and talking about new work.

On Saturday, Harryette will be reading with two other readers for Cave Canem at 3:00, at 20 Jay Street, Brooklyn, Suite 310A.

Harryette doesn't come to New York very often so I hope to see you.

Thanks & Namaste,

I LOVE Harryette Mullen and missed her events due to an unfortunate string of events. I just finished reading "Looking up Harryette Mullen" and had so much fun noting the interpretive gaps between her intended meaning and my analysis. She is such an amazing writer--the way she plays with words makes me fall in love with words all over again. The first collection of her work I read was "Sleeping with the Dictionary" and from that point forward, I was hooked. I really wish I met her last week--that would have definitely made my year! It must have been quite an experience! All of this is great because I also have the pleasure of discovering your work as well. Hope you are well and thanks so much for creating such a beautiful book!
