March 29, 2017

A villanelle is not a small cottage in the French countryside. It's a kind of poem where you can make the same point - for example, making out with a bartender at The Maple Leaf - in a number of chorus-like ways. That's about the only literary fact you'll learn from Louisiana's ex Poet Laureate Julie Kane on this Happy Hour, but you will learn some more about Julie and the... Read More »

Is This Me?
March 22, 2017
