Ray Fest

Many of you know my great admiration for translator, teacher, critic, and general supporter of the avant-garde, Ray Ellenwood. I was happy to contribute to the Open Letter festschrift for him with an essay that explains much of my affection for Ray.

For the event below, I'll be keeping it very short, with just a simple thank you to Ray and a reading of a Claude Gauvreau poem.
