Book Release for Wake Me When Its Over: Selected Poems of Bill Kushner
Bill Kushner is the ultimate flaneur of Manhattan night-life, as both participant and observer. His fierce, ebullient, eye-opening work is always on target, whether clearheaded or confused, and all the scary ambivalence of self-acceptance rings true on every page. Please join us for the release of Wake Me When Its Over: Selected Poems by this beloved poet and friend of many, edited by Peter Bushyeager. Organized by Lewis Warsh, the reading will feature Anselm Berrigan, Edmund Berrigan, Peter Bushyeager, Charlotte Carter, Lydia Cortes, Kenny Angel Davis, Maggie Dubris, Edward Foster, Guy Gauthier, Barbara Henning, Patricia Spears Jones, Betty LaRoe, Robin Messing, Dennis Moritz, Elinor Nauen, KB Nemcosky, Tom Savage, Noam Scheindlin, Stephen Spicehandler, Lewis Warsh, Phyllis Wat, and Don Yorty.

Bill Kushner (1931-2015) authored eight collections of poetry and co-authored a volume of collaborative poems with Tom Savage. His work has been anthologized in Up Late (4 Walls & Windows, 1987), In Our Time: The Gay and Lesbian Anthology (St. Martin's, 1989), Out of This World (Crown, 1991), Best American Poetry 2002 (Scribners, 2002), and Poetry After 9/11: An Anthology of New York Poets (Melville House Publishing, 2003). He was a 1999 and 2005 Fellow of the New York Foundation of the Arts.
