Need Something To Do Wednesday?


What do ghosts have to do with projectors? Aside from being staples in Scooby Doo episodes, the two pair up in the title of an ongoing reading series curated by poet Megan Williams. One installment of the series will take place today at 7 p.m. on the front lawn of Boise literary hub The Cabin, 801 S. Capitol Blvd.

Ghosts and Projectors will present Feng Sun Chen, an MFA student of poetry at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis and author of the book of poetry, Butcher's Tree. Black Ocean, which printed the book, said it "reconsiders what it means to construct a myth; to mold around a hollow space a materiality of shape that depends on contours without content."

Poet Charles Gabel will also take part in the Ghosts and Projectors reading. Gabel is the author of a chapbook of poems, Pastoral, and studied poetry at Boise State after studying classical civilization at Loyola University Chicago. You can check out some of his poems here.

The reading doesn't have an admission fee, but a $2 donation is encouraged.
