The So & So Series began in Boston in 2006 and moved to Raleigh in 2008. Featuring both local and national poets, So & So has hosted more than 300 readers, including Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award winners. In order to connect more fully with Raleigh's arts community, So & So has partnered with CAM Raleigh once more for the 2015 season. Poets will be responding to pieces of their choosing in whatever exhibit is being shown at the time of their reading. The hope is that this will start a dialogue between the poets and the artists and may even lead to interesting and exciting collaborations.
This month's readers will be Eric Amling, Monica McClure, & Niina Pollari.
