The BAP 2011 launch on September 22, 2011 was a huge success, with knockout readings by all of the participants. You can read about it here. Following the reading, we repaired to the nearby Cafe Loup where Star Black took pictures. You can view her photographs here. Star Black's most recent book of poems is Velleity's Shade, Saturnalia Books, 2010. She is a visiting assistant professor at Stony Brook University and will be teaching a graduate poetry workshop this spring at Stony Brook Southampton's MFA Program in Creative Writing and Literature.
