“Poetry Event Organized By Veterinarians” Probably Makes This Event Sound Less Exciting Than It Actually Ought To Be

Acclaimed poet and National Book Award winner Mark Doty is reading at Rhode Island College tonight. Doty is scheduled to read from Dog Years, the bestselling 2007 memoir which centers around the companionship of his two retrievers. The event is part of Vet Week, a celebration of animals and their health organized which is by the Rhode Island Veterinary Medical Association and which, oddly, includes a poetry reading every year.

7pm, Tuesday, Rhode Island College, Alger Hall 110

  1. Gah! I have to miss this because I’m seeing Tom Sgouros tonight at BOTS! And I’m missing a PEAC meeting because of that, too. And even if all that wasn’t going on, I’d still have to choose between Ladd Observatory, poetry at Blue State, and figure drawing at AS220.

    And Tuesday is one of the ‘slow’ nights in this town! Anyone who says there’s nothing to do in Providence just doesn’t know how to read.
