Calendar of Venues .
Hey Chicago Poetry fans,

I've been in the trenches lately helping to wage a national boycott of the world's worst polluter, an oil company called BP that has devastated our Gulf Coast. If you see a pretty green sign that says bp don't give them a single penny. But in the midst of it all, poetry goes on. So here's my picks for upcoming local poetry events in June.

On Wednesday, June 9, at 7:30 PM, Danny's Tavern at 1951 West Dickens St, will feature John Beer and Suzanne Buffam. It's free but you have to be at least 21.

And also on Wednesday, June 9th, 6:30 PM, the new management of the Poetry Center of Chicago continues its momentum with a reading by 2009 Tor House Poetry Prize Winner Sharon Fain, at SAIC Ballroom, 112 S. Michigan Avenue. It's free.

And also on Wednesday, June 9, 7:30 PM, The Vittum Theater, 1012 North Noble St, will present the final Encyclopedia Show for the season. This time the topic is The Circus. It's $6.

And it's Pride Month, so it's a big month for the poetry POW-WOW every Tuesday at Jeffrey Pub, 7041 S Jeffrey. For a $5 donation you get food from 7 to 8 PM and then the big show from 8 to 10 PM, including women of Dyke March on June 8; Haki Madhubuti and Raymond Berry on June 15; Lucy Smith and a pride celebration on June 22; and Achy Obejas on June 29.

On Thursday, June 10, 7 PM, Quimby's, 1854 West North Ave, will host a free reading featuring Sonja Ahlers and Anne Elizabeth Moore.

Of course, Saturday and Sunday, June 12 and 13, is the Printers Row Lit Fest (formerly known as the book fair), with so many things going on that I'd have to take up half of this page to list them all, so why don't you just click here to view the schedule at Chicago Tribune.

After the big lit fest, on Saturday, June 12, at 7 PM, the first installment of the Chicago Poetry Showcase reading series will launch at Cafe Ballou, 939 N. Western Ave. The Chicago Poetry Showcase will take the place of the second Saturday Poetry Cram open mic occasionally, in order to give poets a venue in which they can share more than a few minutes of their work. The June 12 Showcase will feature six poets, reading fifteen minutes each, with no open mic. The featured artists will be: Donna Pecore, Paul Martinez Pompa, GPA from LOEP, Pete Dederick, Udayan Das and Beatriz Badikian-Gartler. The event is free and open to the public.

And on Sunday, June 13, 7 PM, Myopic Books, 1564 North Milwaukee Ave, presents a free reading with Debrah Morkun and Kim Gek Lin Short.

On Tuesday, June 15, from 7:30 to 9:30 PM, Adam Hart will be celebrating the one-year anniversary of the online journal Apparatus, with a free event at Winston's Internet Cafe, 5001 N. Clark, featuring readings by Amy David, Cynthia Gallaher, Daniel Godston, Divya Rajan, Donna Vorreyer, Ellen Placey Wadey, Gregg Shapiro, Jacob Saenz, John Paul Davis, Richard Fox, Robert McDonald and more.

The next big Palabra Pura event features Luis Alberto Ambroggio an Frank Varela on Wednesday, June 16, 7:30 PM, at Decima Musa, 1901 S. Loomis Ave. It's free and open to all ages.

Thursday, June 17, 7 to 9 PM, is the Words That Kill Slam Finals, Lilly's Bar, 2513 N. Lincoln Ave, with Tristan Silverman, Vincent Paschke, Morris Ink, Billy Tuggle, Andi Strickland and Gregory Pickett. It's $5 or canned goods donation.

The 17th annual Gwendolyn Brooks Open Mic Poetry Award will happen on Wednesday, June 23, at 7 PM, at Chopin Theatre, 1543 W. Division St. Twenty poets will read to compete for a $500 prize. It's $7, $5 for students.

On Sunday, June 27, the Rhino Poetry Workshop returns to the Evanston Public Library, located at Church and Orrington. This time the workshop leader is Anne Becker, whose topic will be "a Bodily Function: How to make Poem that moves." It goes down from 1:30 to 4:30 PM in Room 108. Bring 15 or more copies (no longer than two pages) of work you want critiqued and a $5 to $10 donation is appreciated.

Now, let me get back to fighting the good fight so that I can kick some corporate butt,

CJ Laity
