"Sendero Luminoso": A Night for New Directions

On Tuesday night, December 5th at 7:30, New Directions, the perennially perfect book publisher, will host an evening of anniversary. New York's most venerable literary institution will be celebrating its seventieth birthday and the publication of its founder James Laughlin's memoir, THE WAY IT WASN'T: FROM THE FILES OF JAMES LAUGHLIN. Tickets for the event are $10 or $7, if your a Poetry Society of America member. A whole slew of stalwarts will be reading, including Susan Howe and Eliot Weinberger, and you'd be paying more for a movie in Manhattan. The celebration takes place at the Tishman Auditorium of the New School, 66 W. 12th St. between 5th and 6th Avenues. Enjoy! curley
