Open mic 7-8 p.m. followed by my good friend Mary Jo Firth Gillett, Oakland University's Poet In Residence and professor of my very first college English class Edward Haworth Hoeppner, and Detroit poet francine j. harris who had a couple of awesome poems in the McSweeney's Book of Poets Picking Poets (McSweeney's Books, 2007), my favorite poetry anthology ever.
