Tuesday, 11/11

6:00 PM in the Arts Cafe: William Carlos Williams and the Women: the legacy of WCW at 125, featuring Sarah Dowling, Pattie McCarthy, Jena Osman, and Michelle Taransky.

We'll celebrate the 125th birthday of William Carlos Williams with talks and readings by Sarah Dowling, Pattie McCarthy, Jena Osman, and Michelle Taransky.

Why Williams? If the Writers House had to choose a poet to name as a literary patron saint, Williams would be a strong contender (a close second, perhaps, to Emily Dickinson). And, of course, Williams and his poetic legacy continue to resonate for many contemporary poets. Join us for an exploration of the ways in which Williams matters today.

Oh! Pears is a new project from Corey Duncan, ex Pattern Is Movement guitarist. As a guitarist and writer in PIM from 2001-2007 , Duncan played on the first two records The (Im)possiblity of Longing, and Stowaway, and was also on Stowaway's remix by Scott Solter, Canonic. After leaving PIM in 2007 he formed a band called Padre Pio with members of West Philadelphia favorites F*** With the Bull Get the Horns. The inspiration for Oh! Pears came from Duncan's upbringing. He grew up listening to his dad's jazz records from the 30's such as Fats Waller and Billie Holiday, and his mom's family were all classically trained musicians. In recent years Duncan started finding links between his somewhat unique style of indie pop songwriting and the sounds he remembered from childhood. He wanted to evoke loveliness and charm of 30s melodies and the ebb and flow of string quartets in his own music. He is currently in the middle of recording an E.P. with the expert help of PIM drummer Chris Ward, who is engineering the recording and playing drums on some of the songs. For the live show, Duncan has put together a large and ever expanding ensemble of very talented players presently including violas, cellos, guitars, percussionists, and singers.

7:00 PM in the Arts Cafe: KWH Art opening for Tapeworm, a collaborative student exhibition based on Darren Wershler-Henry's The Tapeworm Foundry: andor the dangerous prevalence of imagination, co-sponsored by the Creative Writing Program and the English Department.


The Tapeworm Foundry is a quintessential piece of conceptual writing, faithfully formulaic but also unusually compelling in its fruition: a single rambling, unpunctuated sequence of possible projects that range from quirky and absurd to highly allusive of the 20th century artistic and literary avant-garde. Artists participating in the exhibition have created work responding to these charges, from "detourn a book about the berenstain bears by replacing all text with material from a poetics by charles bernstein" to "mount an art show displaying graffiti covered panels detached from public washroom stalls." Join us for an opening to include live renditions of a few more phrases from Tapeworm and a reading from the text by author Darren Wershler-Henry.

Wershler-Henry's discussion with Al Filreis, Kenny Goldsmith, and KWH Art curator Kaegan Sparks is available as a podcast.
