Christopher Kain Reads Tonight at the Cantab

If you find yourself in the Boston area this evening, have nothing to do with your time and want to get out of the pouring rain then I suggest you head over to the Cantab Lounge in Cambridge and proceed downstairs where my best friend and roommate Christopher Kain will be the featured poet this evening.

Tonight, Christopher is finally unveiling his long awaited collection of poems titled Twentieth Century Limited: One Hundred Years, One Hundred Poems. So yes, Christopher has written poem for every year between 1901 and 2000.

Christopher was originally scheduled to feature last June but a sudden illness prevented him from doing so. I have no doubt it will be well worth the wait.

The proceedings get underway with an open mike at 8 p.m. Christopher hits the stage at around 10 p.m. Christopher will have a few special guests including a certain conservative poet.

If you attend only one poetry reading in your lifetime then this one is surely it.
