Poetry in Detroit & Poetry/Politics

Two rather interesting links, found on Silliman's blog these past days.  The first is the 50 day blog leading up to the American elections: Poetry Politic: A Blog in 50 Days. The first post on this blog gave a direct link to the FBI file of Muriel Rukeyser.  Second, the Grand Piano event, a reading October 4, 2008 in Detroit, at the Wendell W. Anderson, Jr. Auditorium, Walter B. Ford II Building, College for Creative Studies, John R & Frederick Douglass Streets.  This event features at least seven poets reading their works, including Carla Harryman and Barrett Watten, both from Detroit.
