Rain Taxi reading

Tonight I went to a reading by Dan Beachy-Quick sponsored by Rain Taxi at Open Book.

It was an interesting experience. There were about 50 people in attendance and I actually knew three people. Which is quite a lot, considering.

Beachy-Quick's book is about Moby Dick. Sort of. And it was interesting, despite my reluctance to follow poetry.

Honestly, I don't understand a lot of this fascination with dead literature and poets. But hanging out at a place that honors printing and typography is nice.
