The Vampire Sonnets and The Sound of Poets Cooking 

When: Sat., Jan. 29, 1 p.m. 2011
Price: $20
With the Twilight film franchise winding down and a remake of Buffy the Vampire Slayer in the works, who can tell where we are on the vampire-loving (or -hating) trajectory? But that's not stopping artists from taking the genre and making it their own. You can tell the creatures figure prominently in poet David Nelson Bradsher's new work, The Vampire Sonnets. The work revolves around 19th-century Londoner Tristan Grey's internal struggles after being changed by a mysterious evil woman. The afternoon will be broken into two parts. First, poets Debra Kaufman, Grey Brown and Richard Krawiec will read from their collaboration, The Sound of Poets Cooking. Local poet Tim Juhl will also read one of his works. Tea will be served during the intermission for The Vampire Sonnets, which will be performed after the break. Paul Paliyenko will read the sonnets, and Anya Russian will dance the roles of the women with whom Tristan connects. Tickets to the 1 p.m. event are $20 and include the copy of The Vampire Sonnets book; 25 percent of the proceeds go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. —Sarah Ewald
