Shape Shifters: Poems from Lynn Levin's Miss Plastique with Odi Gonzales & Mimian Morales
October 27, 2013, 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Cornelia Street Cafe, 29 Cornelia St., New York, NY

A celebration of Philadelphia-based poet Lynn Levin’s new collection, Miss Plastique (Ragged Sky Press, Princeton, 2013).  Known for her eclecticism, humor, and range of poetic styles, Levin invites the reader into a world of female bravado in which Miss Plastique and her many selves rant, fret, joke, fall in love, and do their hair.  The collection has garnered rave reviews in The Philadelphia Inquirer, Rattle, Word Riot, Cleaver, and elsewhere.

Also appearing will be noted Peruvian poet Odi Gonzales, author of seven poetry collections, who has collaborated with Levin on a translation of his work, and who will read his multi-vocal and often surreal poems in Spanish.

Rounding off this unique evening, a performance of “strange little songs about dead movie stars, unrequited obsessions, and existential longing” by winning Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Mimian Morales.

$8, includes one drink
