WEDNESDAY PICK | Poetry down under: Jim Cihlar, Heid Erdrich, Kate Kysar, and Bill Reichard at SubText


SubText is the Twin Cities’ newest independent bookstore, and it comes with quite a pedigree: it’s located in the former Common Good Books space below Nina’s, and its employees include Sue Zumberge (formerly of Common Good) and David Unowsky, owner of the late great Hungry Mind. On July 11, four poets will be presenting their work. Heid Erdrich is the big name; she’ll be joined by Jim Cihlar, Kate Kysar, and Bill Reichard. Mary Turck attended a reading last month, and described the atmosphere as “welcome and relaxed.”
