It’s time again for a "Big Night," Just Buffalo Literary Center’s monthly salon that’s out to unite local audiences for poetry, art, food and music in the Western New York Book Arts Center (468 Washington St.). The second program of the current "Big Night" season will get going at 8 p.m. Saturday (Nov. 19)with a reading from poet Anna Moschovakis, music from Malaria Control and readings from the recently released "Starlight Studios Anthology."
Moschovakis has been collecting rave reviews for her most recent book of poetry, "You and Three Others Are Approaching a Lake," out on Minneapolis-based Coffee House Press. Moschovakis’ wide-ranging poetry, according to the publisher, "incorporates Craigslist ads, technobabble, twentieth-century ethics texts, scientific research, autobiographical detail, and historical anecdote to present an engaging lyric analysis of the way we live now."
The Starlight Studios anthology features a collection of poems and illustrations by 15 artists associated with the local arts organization, which helps people with developmental, neurological and learning disabilities create and sell their art.
