We Love the Tap Room for Poetry

We are already thinking about the weekend.  This Sunday, February 19, the Tap Room will present this month's poetry reading starting at 5:00. The Tap Room has been a nice spot for a series of visiting and local poets. The space is dark, like a 1950's beatnik poetry club. This month, the Tap Room will host Paul Foster Johnson and Justin Runge.

Here is the information on  the visiting poets.
Paul Foster Johnson is the author of Study on Pavillions and Safe Rooms  and Refrains/Unworkings (Apostrophe Books, 2008). With E. Tracy Grinnell, he is the author of the g-o-n-g press chapbook Quadriga. His poems have appeared in Jacket, The Awl, Cannot Exist, GAM, EOAGH, Fence, and Octopus. He has served as a curator of the Experiments and Disorders reading series at Dixon Place and as an editor at Litmus Press/Aufgabe. Currently he lives on the Lower East Side of Manhattan and is the editor of The Poetry Project Newsletter 
Justin Runge is a writer and designer currently living in Lawrence, Kansas, where he edits Blue Hour Press and servers as designer for Parcel. Poems of his can be found in DIAGRAM, Linebreak, Harpur Palate, and elsewhere.
