Tonight I am to attend an opening for Ibbetson artist, Gene Smith's work at the Citizen Bank in Central Square Cambridge at 6 PM. Gene is an old friend of mine, who is an experienced character actor in regional theatre and independent films, and contributed his fine artwork to the last issue of Ibbetson. While interviewing Vera Gold and Nancy Mehegan from 96 Inc., I turned around and saw John Silber the presient of Boston University staring me in the face. He was an old nemesis of us kids in the 70's, who were on the tailend of the 60's scene.

I was glad to hear that Linda Haviland Conte's poem "Little Weed" won an award at the Cambridge Poetry Festival last Sunday.
Tonight Harris Gardner , Marc Goldfinger and Rachel Goldstein read at the Newton Free Library at 7pm. Remember it's the Lummox Journal's all-poetry issue next month--look 'em up on Goggle. And the new Poesy website should be up tomorrow, with interviews and poetry from poets, coast to coast. I hear Reggie Gibson's venue at the Zeitgeist is quite a hit, every Tuesday night...street musicians and poets, quite a mix.
