Among the festival highlights are:

—our levy lives series devotes a night to Buffalo’s Satellite Telephone magazine;
—our 7th annual small, small press fair, with exhibits from a host of small presses, and readings by their authors;
—a discussion on, and readings of, site-specific poems; and
—poet David Shapiro reading and in conversation with poet Joanna Fuhrman.
