Charles Olson

Charles Olson

We take one Tuesday night off from our weekly writer’s circle, Living Room, but we’re back on January 4, 2011, as Paul Nelson presents an homage to Charles Olson, who would have turned 100 on December 27, 2010.

SPLAB thanks everyone who contributed in one way or another to the success of our literary arts project. Our community is growing and we hope you’ll consider stopping by to experience the engaging company of other writers.

Happy Holidays!
