Tigertail, Tigertail, Burning Bright

The idea of Tigertail releasing a fifth anniversary "best of" volume of its annual poetry periodical was concieved early on in the publication's life. "It was Mitchell Kaplan's idea," says Mary Luft, founder of the local cultural institution. So it's only fitting that tonight, Tigertail will celebrate the launch of its fifth annual poetry journal at Kaplan's indie literary bastion Books & Books (265 Aragon Ave., Coral Gables). Guest editor Max Winter selected some of the most preeminent locally residing talents for this special volume.

"Max has a really fresh voice, a really interesting perspective as the editor for an online publication." (Winter edits the poetry magazine Fence.) "It's been fascinating, seeing how he translates the written word into a digital form," says Luft. This event will appropriately take place during National Poetry Month, and the celebration begins at 7:30 p.m. with a who's who reading by Tigertail contributors, including Nick Carbó, Adrian Castro, Denise Duhamel, Michael Hettich, Jen Karetnick, and Maureen Seaton.

On Friday April 27 at 7:30 p.m., Winter will share his own powerful words. Visit www.tigertail.org for event details. --Patrice Elizabeth Grell Yursik
