Three Readings Three Nights

There are three readings in three nights I want to go to next week in Seattle:

John Marshall, reading from his new chapbook Taken With, Monday, June 6th, 7:30pm, at Elliott Bay Books.
Sam Hamill, reading from his new and selected, Almost Paradise, Tuesday, June 7th, 7:30pm, at Elliott Bay Books.
Richard Rapport, the Seattle neurosurgeon, reading from his new book, Nerve Endings: The Discovery of the Synapse, Wednesday, June 7th, 7:30pm, at Town Hall ($5 admission).

Why is everything always at 7:30? (rather than just 7 or 8?).
Wouldn't "The Discovery of the Synapse" make a great poem title?

Laughing my ass off here in Kentucky--the draft of one of my bad (rejected-even-by-me poems) has THAT title. I'll have to excavate my hard drive and see if I can find it!

Oh Pamela, that is a hoot. Resurrect it if you can find it.

Here's another Peter, It's About Time Writers #191, also at 7:30 p.m. Thurs. June 9, 2005 (Ravenna Third placeBks) Beth Coyote, Maya Sonenberg, Sibyl James,+ Gabriella Gutierrez y Muhs on The Writer's Craft.

Can't complain for want of anything to do here in Seattle:-)
